Description

Crisscrossing the borders of our nation, Miller exposes in Border Patrol Nation, the underpinnings of the ever-expanding Homeland Security apparatus that is creating a surveillance state in both the U.S. and abroad. Since 9/11, the government has spent $791 billion on Homeland Security. Miller will address this "world in which we now live where eradicating border violations is given higher priority than eradicating malnutrition, poverty, homelessness, illiteracy, [and] unemployment." While exposing the inhumanity of the border industrial system, Miller will also reveal the humanity of both the victims and the victimizers.
