Border Patrol Nation: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Homeland Security
Todd Miller, who for the past fifteen years has researched, written about, and worked on immigration and border issues from both sides of the U.S. Mexico divide for organizations such as BorderLinks, Witness for Peace, and NACLA. He did the brunt of this work in Tucson, Arizona and Oaxaca, Mexico. He is the author of Border Patrol Nation, and Storming the Wall: Climate Change, Migration, and Homeland Security, and is busy at work on his next book Empire of Borders: The Expansion of the US Border Around the World

The border enforcement apparatus needs to be reduced, not enhanced. This means no more wall funding to Trump and no more surveillance technologies to the border as Democratic leadership such as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer insist. They both amount to the same thing: a reinforcement of an apparatus of exclusion. The issue of people arriving to our border is correctly a humanitarian one, and they need to be treated like refugees, not criminals. Miller sounds the alarm that this country's borders are being transformed into up-armored, heavily militarized zones run by a border-industrial complex, expanding police state. Miller shows us in stark relief how the entire country has become a militarized border zone, with consequences that affect us all.
