Migrants in Detention

Today, the immigration crisis is growing more out of control than ever with controversies about how to keep illegal immigrants from entering America and what to do about those in custody on both sides of the border.

Meanwhile, protests are growing both from those who support the strong administration policies to protect our borders and opponents who want to ease acceptance conditions which will result in more and more illegal immigrants able to come to America. Additionally, there is controversy over what to do about the 11 million illegal immigrants who have already entered America.

What can we do to overcome this problem that is threatening the American economy and society? In response, criminal justice expert and commentator on American society Paul Brakke, author and publisher of American Leadership Books, has come up with a program of suggestions and recommendations to deal with this crisis. The program consists of a white paper, video presentations, PowerPoints, and collection of video shorts, which highlight what is wrong and what to do about it.  To alert the media, politicians, educators, and academics, Brakke has been sending them these advisory packages, and so far he has received commendations for his effort from President Donald Trump and Senator Tom Cotton, from his home state of Arkansas,.

“This is a true national tragedy,” Brakke says. “And the controversy over how to deal with the immigrants has been tearing our country apart, as well as requiring more and more money for camps, guards, monitoring, and a wall to hold back the tide of illegal immigrants trying to get into the U.S.

While they come by other points of entry, such as coming by boat, plane, or cars, the majority seek to walk across the border illegally, and that’s where a wall can help.”

Given the urgency of the problem, Brakke has been creating these programs on what we should do overcome the immigration crisis and how to bring the opposing sides together to agree on what to do.

The videos in the series are designed to provide a visual introduction to the problem which Brakke presents in a series of PowerPoints and white papers. Now there are four on overcoming the immigration crisis, which are part of a series of 13 videos on how to resolve other key issues, including improving citizen-police relations and deal with the divisions in American society and the opioid crisis

The videos in the immigration series include the following:




In each video, Brakke discusses the problem and then suggests what to do about it. In making these observations and recommendations about overcoming the immigration crisis, Brakke has drawn on more than five years of research on the U.S. criminal justice system and the divisions in America society.

He has then written about these issues in nine books which include most recently: Dealing with Crime by Illegal Immigrants and the Opioid Crisis, Crime in America, and Uncertain Justice. He offers a unique conservative approach to crime, criminal justice, and American society, based on applying an economic business model. The goal is to do what works most efficiently to reduce costs and create more productive citizens.

All of the videos for his program are available on the American Leadership Books’ YouTube channel. The whole program of videos, PowerPoints, and white papers will also be available on the American Leadership Books’ website in August.

To learn more, you can get a copy of Dealing with Crime by Illegal Immigrants and the Opioid Crisis, Crime in America, or Uncertain Justice. The books are available through Amazon, Kindle, and major bookstores.

Also, free copies are available for government officials and politicians who are seeking ways to overcoming the crisis at Review copies are also available for high school and college teachers who might want to use these books and presentation materials in their classes.
