Rector, too. Mark Levin interviewed him for about 15 minutes on 5/17/2006, and the interview is archived here

Notably, Rector doesn`t mince words in stating his conclusions. Highly recommended. Two thumbs up!
Levin also interviewed Center for Immigration Studies
executive director Mark Krikorian on his 5/17/06 show. Audio for this and other segments of that show are available here
