"Emmy Award-winning NPR journalist Maria Hinojosa shares her personal story interwoven with American immigration policy's coming-of-age journey at a time when our country's branding went from "The Land of the Free" to "the land of invasion.""-- Provided by publisher.
Hinojosa relates the history of US immigration policy that has brought us to where we are today, as she shares her experience growing up Mexican American on the south side of Chicago. For thirty years she has reported on stories and communities in America that often go ignored by the mainstream media, documenting the existential wasteland of immigration detention camps for news outlets that often challenged her work. As a survivor, a feminist, a citizen, and a journalist who owns her voice while striving for the truth, Hinojosa makes an urgent call to fellow Americans to open their eyes to the immigration crisis-- and understand that it affects us all. -- adapted from jacket.
