This audiobook is a mixture of history, polemic, and personal remembrances that serves as a primer on American policy and cruelty. Timothy Pabon's performance smooths the edges--he is in no rush, and any feeling of authorial outrage is expressed through emphasized syllables and words. There are no astounding revelations here. Anyone following the news probably knows most of the current events discussed--family separations, the growth of the private prison industry, and the anti-immigrant rhetoric revved up by certain political figures. The author's historical overview of immigration may be new to more listeners. Overall, this is a worthwhile work, ably narrated. Pabon's fluency in Spanish is reflected in his adroit handling of both people and place names. G.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2020]
