A READING and DISCUSSION with TODD MILLER
Author of Border Patrol Nation (City Lights Press, 2014)
and Community Activists from WICIR

Border Patrol Nation takes the reader on a voyage like no other book. From El Paso to Detroit, from reality television to corporate trade shows, from South Carolina to the Dominican Republic, Todd Miller paints a highly original and illuminating picture of the breadth and depth of the U.S. government's boundary and immigrant policing apparatus, and surveillance and social control in the era of 'Homeland Security.' It is a book that frightens and inspires, and one that demands a wide audience. Miller's  message is one we ignore at our peril." --Joseph Nevins, author of Operation Gatekeeper and Beyond:  The War on "Illegals" and the Remaking of the U.S.-Mexico Boundary.
