The U.S./Mexico Border

There was an article on npr.org this weekend discussing how illegal border crossings along the U.S./Mexico border have decreased in recent years, but how they’re still just as deadly for those attempting to cross.

People have very strong feelings about this particular issue and it’s not something that will be going away any time soon.  If you have a personal or academic interest in illegal border crossings along the U.S./Mexico border, we have a number of books that might interest you:
