Description

It was family separation and “kids in cages” that drove Sarah Towle to the border. On discovering the many-headed Hydra that is the US immigration complex, she could never look away again. In Crossing the Line: Finding America in the Borderlands, Sarah exposes, layer by “broken” layer, a system failing everyone—save the profiteers and demagogues who benefit from it. Yet she also finds hope: in the everyday acts of ordinary people who daily model a better way. Amplifying their voices, Sarah urges us to act before we travel farther down our current course—one which history won’t soon forgive, or forget.
