Larry Blasko will discuss and sign his new book Opening the Borders: Solving the Mexico/U.S. Immigration Problem For Our Sake and Mexico?s. Every day tens of thousands of illegal immigrants stream north across the border, overtaxing our healthcare and education system and bringing drugs, disease, and potential terrorists across the border with them. In spite of this, Larry Blasko suggests that the best solution is not a closed border, but an open border policy similar to that enjoyed in the European Union by member countries.
About the author, Larry Blasko served for more than three decades with The Associated Press working as writer, editor, columnist and executive.
