Summary
For nearly a decade, Margaret Regan has reported on the chaos along the Arizona-Mexico border, ground zero for immigration since 2000. Undocumented migrants cross into the state in overwhelming numbers, pushed into its dangerous deserts by a U.S. border policy that seals off safer urban crossings. In peak years, Border Patrol agents in the Tucson Sector catch more than a thousand migrants a day. Arizona also has the highest number of migrant deaths. Set against the dramatic wilderness of mesquites and cacti, where summer temperatures hit 115, Regan's book tells stories of the people caught up in this international tragedy. Traveling to both sides of the border, she visits migrants stranded in Mexican shelters, rides shotgun with the Border Patrol, camps in the back country with "No More Deaths" activists, and speaks to angry ranchers and vigilantes. Her on-the-ground reportage puts her in the heart of America's complicated story of immigration.--From publisher description
