I have researched and written about border issues for more than 15 years, the last seven as an independent journalist and writer. I reside in the Mexico-U.S. borderlands (Tucson, Arizona), but have also spent many years living and working in Oaxaca, Mexico. My work has appeared in the New York Times, TomDispatch, The Nation, Guernica, Al Jazeera English, and Common Dreams, among other places. I’m a contributing editor on border and immigration issues for NACLA Report on the Americas and its column “Border Wars”. My first book, Border Patrol Nation: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Homeland Security, came out in March 2014. My forthcoming book Storming the Wall: Climate Change, Migration, and Homeland Security will be published in 2017. I am also currently at work on a project investigating the extension of the U.S. border regime abroad–to places far away from U.S. territorial boundaries but well within its political and economic sphere of influence.
