Howard G. Buffett, the son of Warren Buffett, goes where many fear to tread. A New York Times bestselling author and a philanthropist widely recognized for his understanding of complex social problems, Buffett is also what Full Measure called "an unlikely soldier in the border war:" As a volunteer auxiliary deputy sheriff, he's seen first-hand the tragic impact of cheap Mexican heroin and other opiate cocktails that are turning Americans into addicts and drug mules, and killing us at record levels. In this book, Buffett offers his first-hand experiences with the impact of what he calls America's fifty-state border crisis as a sworn law enforcement officer and landowner along the Arizona and Texas borders with Mexico. Buffett's primary agenda: Making a case to strengthen America's defenses against the Mexican drug cartels who have grown astonishingly powerful by exploiting both the gaps in our expensive yet ineffective border security strategy, as well as the desperate people trying to find a safe haven in the U.S. What's ultimately at stake, he argues, is nothing less than supporting the rule of law in the western hemisphere. Buffett argues that our porous border has actually created a humanitarian crisis -- in America. Buffett's take is non-partisan, but pro-security. Buffett illuminates the roots of the problem in both Mexico and Central America's "Northern Triangle" countries where violence and lawlessness are rampant. Buffett argues for bi-partisan cooperation in rethinking how our border security is organized and managed today. While preventing large-scale terrorist attacks on the U.S. remains Job One, it's time to adapt our command structure and apply resources in a more realistic and effective way to fight the emergence of Mexican drug cartels. OUR FIFTY STATE BORDER CRISIS promises to be a startling, eye-opening perspective that will change the public conversation on border security.
