About The Book
Armed authorities watch from a military-grade surveillance tower as lines of people stream toward the security checkpoint, tickets in hand, anxious and excited to get through the gate. Few seem to notice or care that the US Border Patrol is monitoring the Super Bowl, as they have for years, one of the many ways that forces created to police the borders are now being used, in an increasingly militarized fashion, to survey and monitor the whole of American society.
In fast-paced prose, Todd Miller sounds an alarm as he chronicles the changing landscape. Traveling the country — and beyond — to speak with the people most involved with and impacted by the Border Patrol, he combines these first-hand encounters with careful research to expose a vast and booming industry for high-end technology, weapons, surveillance, and prisons. While politicians and corporations reap substantial profits, the experiences of millions of men, women, and children point to staggering humanitarian consequences. Border Patrol Nation shows us in stark relief how the entire country has become a militarized border zone, with consequences that affect us all.
Todd Miller has worked on US border issues for over fifteen years. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, Mother Jones, and elsewhere.

“[Miller] offers a vision of what the military-industrial complex looks like once it’s transported, jobs and all, to the US — Mexican border and turned into a consumer mall for the post-9/11 era … [it’s] a striking and original picture.” — Tom Engelhardt, TomDispatch
“What Jeremy Scahill was to Blackwater, Todd Miller is to the U.S. Border Patrol!” — Tom Miller, author, On the Border: Portraits of America’s Southwestern Frontier
“Miller’s book is a fascinating read… and bring the work of Susan Orlean to mind.” — Amanda Eyre Ward Kirkus Reviews
“Todd Miller has entered a secret world, and he has gone deep. If you want to learn about the Border Patrol’s world, you will find this book informative and startling. I’m not sure the Border Patrol will like all that he has to say. But his is a moral work that wrestles with a huge story. Powerful.” — Luis Alberto Urrea, author of The Devil’s Highway: A True Story
“Journalist Miller tells an alarming story of U.S. Border Patrol and Homeland Security’s ever-widening reach into the lives of American citizens and legal immigrants as well as the undocumented. In addition to readers interested in immigration issues, those concerned about the NSA’s privacy violations will likely be even more shocked by the actions of Homeland Security.” — Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
“Todd Miller’s book Border Patrol Nation has some eye-opening reporting, especially for those of us who live along the border and think we know the facts of the expanding police state.” — Charles Bowden, author of Murder City: Ciudad Juárez and the Global Economy’s New Killing Field
“The U.S. needs a reality check about its border with Mexico, and none need it more than the Congress. I wish every member could get a copy of Border Patrol Nation, and see up close the impact of a quarter century of increasing enforcement and militarization.” — David Bacon, author, The Right to Stay Home: How U.S. Policy Drives Mexican Migration
“Miller reveals the humanity of both the victims and the victimizers, and the inhumanity of the system. A fantastic book.” — Medea Benjamin, co-founder of Code Pink and author of Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control
“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
