Border Patrol Nation: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Homeland Security

The guest is Todd Miller, author of "Border Patrol Nation: Dispatches from the Front LInes of Homeland Security," which shows in stark relief how the entire country has become a militarized border zone, including cities that don't immediately come to mind like Ft. Lauderdale and Miami, FL; Buffalo, Rochester, and Niagra Falls, NY; Detroit and Port Huron, MI; Hilton Head, SC; and Derby Line, VT; among others.

For the past fifteen years Todd Miller has researched, written about, and worked on immigration and border issues from both sides of the U.S. Mexico divide for organizations such as BorderLinks, Witness for Peace, and NACLA. His writings about the border have appeared in the New York Times, TomDispatch, Mother JonesThe Nation, Al Jazeera English, and Salon among other places.
