    To Read or Not to Read? Green Card Warrior: My Quest for Legal Immigration in an Illegals’ System by Nick Adams

    by


    In a tweet early Friday morning, President Trump hailed Nick Adams’s new book, Green Card Warrior,” as a “must read,” suggesting that it offered lessons on how to reimagine the U.S. immigration system. Carlos Lozada writing for the Washington Post disagrees:

    "Well, now I’ve read it, and it is not a must read. If not for the president’s endorsement, the book would barely rate a must acknowledge. It is, however, a must laugh, a must groan, and, if “Green Card Warrior” is indeed where Trump is finding ideas for immigration reform, it is also a you must be kidding me."

    The official abstract of the book Green Card Warrior: My Quest for Legal Immigration in an Illegals’ System*by Nick Adams*reads as* follows:

    "Nick Adams had it all: charisma, energy, a promising TV career, a new organization and an approved Green Card petition. The world was at his feet.*

    Then came the unexpected sabotage and political persecution from one individual. It began a spiral of destruction – finances, family, health and career. He almost lost it all.

    Green Card Warrior is an explosive and startling exposé into the world of legal immigration and what many must endure to come to America.*

    Rising conservative star Nick Adams reveals how he was persecuted by the Obama Administration, and offers an incisive critique of the immigration system – both legal and illegal.*

    This eye-opening account shows how the Obama Administration has broken new ground in its intimidation and harassment of political opponents, now using its State Department to screen and select immigrants based on their politics.*

    In Green Card Warrior, Adams recounts his personal tale, setting it against the larger story of the broken legal immigration system, and unfairness of illegal immigration in America today.

    Nick Adams is the Founder and Executive Director of FLAG, The*Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness. He is a speaker, lecturer, author and commentator.*Adams holds degrees*in Media and Communications, Government and International*Relations, Germanic Studies, and Education from the University*of Sydney.
