The Line Becomes a River by Francisco Cantú

A first-hand account of being a border patrol agent by a descendant of Mexican immigrants that describes the two sides of the border story: the people who cross it searching for the American Dream and those whose job it is to secure it.

As an agent, Cantú is in the front line of this saga, witnessing the desperation and determination of migrants who risk everything for a better life. This book explores the exploitation migrants suffer under the inhumanity of the judicial system that only recognizes them as illegal aliens.
