Beautifully written narrative journalism and essayistic reflection: John Washington publishes in leading mainstream media outlets like The Atlantic, The Believer, and The Nation, and here makes a forthright case for open borders in an accessible style that will appeal to a broad readership.

Expert, well-connected author: This is Washington's second book on the subject of immigration. He is on the staff of a publication that covers the US-Mexico border and is based in Tucson. He is a longtime activist with border organization No More Deaths, and was the US editor of the leading Central American investigative news outlet, El Faro. He helped start NYC-DSA's immigration working group, and worked closely with Movimiento Cosecha.

High-profile endorsements and support: As an award-winning translator of leading Mexican and Central American authors like Anabel Hernandez and Oscar Martinez, the author's network of media supporters spans the border and includes front-line advocates and journalists. Jeremy Scahill has promised to help promote this book, and we can expect blurbs from Harsha Walia, Oscar Martinez, Nick Estes, Silky Shah, Francisco Cant , Jeremy Scahill, Karla Cornejo Villavicencio, and others.

Speaking engagements: In conjunction with immigration advocacy organizations to which the author is connected, like Detention Watch Network, the Florence Project, ACLU Immigration Rights Project, NDLON, and others.
