"Sand and Blood: America's Stealth War on the Mexico Border" is a damning portrait of the southern border, where militaristic fantasies are being unleashed and violent technologies are being tested, always targeting impoverished immigrants.
The groundwork for our current situation began in the 1980s and 1990s. But after 9/11, while Americans' attention was trained on the Middle East, a War on Terror was ramping up on our own soil-aimed not at terrorists but at economic migrants, refugees, and families from South and Central America seeking jobs, safety, and freedom in the US. The Border Patrol grew exponentially, ICE detention centers cropped up across the country, and the southern border has become more militarized than ever before. But we are no safer. Instead, families are being ripped apart, undocumented people are living in fear, and thousands of migrants have died in detention or crossing the border.
"John Carlos Frey is one of the finest examples I know of a journalist who cares. His tireless efforts for years to expose injustices along America's southern border are particularly impressive when gathered together in one book. We need more ... journalists like this." -Fred Peabody, director, All Governments Lie and The Corporate Coup d'Etat
