New Book Argues Border Patrol Has Gone Rogue After Sept. 11 Terrorist Attacks

A scathing new book argues that Border Patrol agents have squandered the rights of undocumented immigrants by resorting to rogue tactics after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the Los Angeles Times reports.

“The U.S. Border Patrol is not just the ‘men in green,’ it is a much larger complex and industrial world that spans from robotics, engineers, salespeople and detention centers to the incoming generation of children in its Explorer programs,” Todd Miller writes in “Border Patrol Nation: Dispatches From the Front Lines of Homeland Security.”

Miller, a journalist who has covered border issues for a decade for major publications, including the New York Times, said agents have become abrasive, and the book offers accounts of people treated harshly.

The book’s release comes as Border Patrol pledged to tone down its tactics after coming under heavy criticism.
