Todd Bensman is the Center for Immigration Studies' Texas-based Senior National Security Fellow. Prior to joining CIS in 2018, Bensman led homeland security intelligence efforts for nine years in the public sector. Bensman's body of work with policy and intelligence operations is founded on more than 20 years of experience as an award-winning journalist covering national security topics, with particular focus on the Texas border.

Overrun by Todd Bensman

Bensman's latest book is: Overrun: How Joe Biden Unleashed the Greatest Border Crisis in U.S. History, 2023.

Overrun provides a full account of the worst mass immigration border crisis ever to strike the United States, why the Biden regime orchestrated it, and how it has undeniably altered our American nation. Bensman provides the information that voters and future leaders need to understand in order to finally end the immigration invasion.

"Todd Bensman tells the truth about illegal immigration and how it is not a victimless crime. With immigration front and center this year, his book is a must-read." – Thomas Homan, former Acting Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, 2017-2018, and author of Defend the Border and Save Lives: Solving Our Most Important Humanitarian and Security Crisis.

Jeremy Carl published an excellent review of Bensman's book in the Fall 2023 issue of Claremont Review of Books: "No Border, No Country". A few excerpts follow:

...As Bensman shows, Biden's policies are extreme even in comparison to those of other Democratic administrations... Now, however, America's largest "charitable" foundations have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to subsidize propaganda suggesting that normal immigration enforcement is somehow criminal...

Illegal immigration has not only mounted to a flood tide during the Biden Administration, it has also started flowing from entirely new sources. Whereas the influx once came primarily from Latin America, the U.S. now plays host to an entire United Nations' worth of entrants...

Our corrupted asylum regime is at the root of our current immigration problem. Overrun documents the many ways in which asylum policies have been used and abused for decades by illegal aliens, the overwhelming majority of whom are economic migrants...

Though he forthrightly notes that "today's Democratic party has taken a wholesale leave of its senses," some part of him still seems to believe in the contemporary "moderate Democrat" who must help "sweep the New Theologian extremists [that is, the open borders Democrats] from the halls of power." There is a certain amount of wishful thinking at work here.

While there are certainly some moderate Democrat voters, there is no moderate Democrat electoral power base. Politically, moderate Democrats are a nonexistent force - none have meaningfully altered Joe Biden's immigration agenda, which has been completely run by the far Left...

These quibbles aside, Todd Bensman expertly shows how Democrats have arrived at a "sanctuary nation" ideology. When patriotic Americans look at the horrific situation at the border, they often wonder how it got that way, and why nobody is doing anything to stop it. Overrun answers both questions and will likely become a key record in the history of America's self-destruction.
