Angela Juarez's delivery is fully engaging, and by the end of this important and timely audiobook--devastating. Seamlessly switching between Spanish and English, she captures the lives of people caught in a broken immigration system. For many Americans, the U.S.-Mexico border remains an abstract concept, a mere "issue" that is easy to frame for political purposes. But Oliva's audiobook includes detailed descriptions of the horrible conditions there. She also discusses how her role as an interpreter for migrants is complicated--is she translating information, or is advocacy required or expected? Juarez's voice fully embodies these struggles. This is an invaluable listen, particularly for those who are only passively aware of the larger political conditions that sustain our immigration crisis.
