The Death of Josseline: Immigration Stories from the Arizona Borderlands


The Death of Josseline: Immigration Stories from the Arizona Borderlands Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dispatches from Arizona—the front line of a massive human migration—including the voices of migrants, Border Patrol, ranchers, activists, and others


With a sweeping perspective and vivid on-the-ground reportage, Margaret Regan tells the stories of the escalating chaos along the U.S.-Mexico border. A varied cast of characters emerges as she rides shotgun with the Border Patrol, interviews deported Mexicans and angry Arizona ranchers, visits migrant shelters in Mexico, and camps out in the thorny wilderness with “No More Deaths” activists. Using Arizona as a microcosm, Regan explores a host of urgent issues: the border militarization that threatens the rights of U.S. citizens, the environmental damage wrought by the new border wall, the desperation that compels migrants to come north, and the human tragedy of the unidentified dead in Arizona’s morgues. 

About the Author

Margaret Regan writes for the Tucson Weekly and has won a dozen journalism awards for border reporting, including two national prizes. She lives in Tucson.
