In his newest book, award-winning journalist Todd Miller explores the presence of US border patrol agents across the world. Working alongside local agents, their efforts to block migrants from approaching the US have resulted in a global war against the poor. Increased borderland patrols, surveillance, and militarization have widened the chasm between those who can vacation or do business where they please, and others whose movements are restricted by armed guards. Visiting the Jordan/Syria border, as well as Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Kenya, Palestine, Mexico, and the Philippines, Miller traces the origin and rise of this border regime that expands thousands of miles beyond US territory.
