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

Todd Miller

About the Program

Todd Miller takes a critical look at the U.S. Border Patrol and how it operates.   He argues that the Border Patrol, which does far more than just protect our borders with Mexico and Canada, has become a bloated bureaucracy that caters to a private, profit-hungry industry that is out of control.  Mr. Miller spoke at Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe, Arizona.
