Best of Political/Current Affairs through the 2015 foreign Latino booklet Awards. 
America's mythical border with Mexico is now a frontier of worry. Veteran journalist Peter Eichstaedt roams this fabled sector from Tucson, Arizona, to El Paso, Texas. He meets with migrants, border safety advocates, and groups ravaged by means of cross-border crime. He rides with the U.S. border patrol. He unearths determined migrants trapped in a global of predatory human smugglers and border protection brokers. millions of border brokers and billions of bucks doesn't stem the tide of 1 million Mexicans and relevant american citizens, who pass the border every year. those migrants fill jobs that experience turn into the underpinnings of the U.S. financial system. Eichstaedt argues that the U.S. needs to reform its immigration and drug legislation now. the United States needs to admit that high priced, counterproductive, and antiquated guidelines have created a perilous state of affairs on either side of the border. the USA must realize and legitimize the contributions made through Latin migrants to the its approach of life.
