Border Patrol Nation Summary ↠ 104 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 societyIn 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 conseuences Border Patrol Nation shows us in stark relief how the entire country has become a militarized border zone with conseuences that affect us allTodd Miller has worked on US border issues for over fifteen years His writing. Miller does an excellent job combining facts and research with an overarching thesis and story Miller documents bizarrely sadistic and arbitrary border policing incidents and through his research and breadth of interviews is able to connect it to high level BP policies in hiring training and enforcement The book takes a sharp look at different aspects of the US Border Patrol to demonstrate how the BP acts with impunity without constitutional accountability and outside the checks and balances judicial system to systematically police borders based on race and perceived identity What do I mean by perceived identity For example Miller documents cases of US citizens being deported to foreign countries without money phone calls or other basic logistics which is how the US deports everyone without care towards survival post deportation because their language or race or association marked them as foreign to a white supremacist system Similarly he documents harassment and detention of US citizens of Arab descent whose present day treatment echoes the US government s choice to treat Japanese immigrant and Japanese descended citizens as associated with enemy combatants during WWII Because it is exempt from many of the laws that govern policing in the US the beefed up post 911 Border Patrol acts as a supplementary para military police force on call to other agencies whose rules of engagement are restricted by the constitution The true weight of the book comes across towards the end when several distinct chapters on border policing along the Canadian border at checkpoints in the interior US and in BP training programs abroad in countries like Dominican Republic all comes together to paint a border that is not a physical barrier between one country and the next but a globalized tool to manage movement of labor and undesirable people Profit driven immigration detention centers with uotas for how many beds the government must keep full at all times the timing of immigration raids for after harvest seasons and the desire of rightwing politicians for restricted work visas instead of immigration all add up to a picture of a corporate controlled exploitative system The book builds slowly but gets pretty intenseUnfortunately I felt like Miller undermined the books well grounded research with extraneous editorializing It is hard to toe the line between emotional connection and care for your subject plus easy to read relateability without going overboard into ranting Miller didn t always succeed to the point where I would hesitate to give this book to someone who did not already agree that Border Patrol is abusive Despite the evidence the occasionally rambling stories that present the evidence can be distracting This book feels like a tool for campaigners who need facts and a framework to back up their experiences but not a campaign tool in itself Maybe not I m a little too biased myself to have a good feel for what an outside observer needs for convincing
