At times a difficult read, Nevins gives almost too much background on Mexican immigrants before highlighting the intended and unintended consequences of America's Operation Gatekeeper. He details how the border has been transformed into a boundary and the construction of the illegal alien. The BRACERO program is explored indepth. Good, but more academic than most people will want to wade through.
