Praise

“This should be required reading for everyone-from President Obama . . . to migrant rights activists. . . . It gave me inspiration.”-Sandra Cisneros, author of The House on Mango Street

“The many admirers of Enrique’s Journey will find much to admire, and fear, in this powerful report.”-Luis Alberto Urrea, author of The Devil’s Highway: A True Story 

“Regan puts a human face on the multiple problems created by desperate, poverty-stricken people entering the United States illegally to look for work, and the costly measures taken by the American government to secure its borders.”-Kirkus Reviews

“Regan . . . has compiled a compelling chronicle of the flow of migrants from northern Mexico into the ‘Tucson Sector’ of Arizona, distilling the many facets of this phenomenon into an enlightening account.”-Booklist

“There may be no better way to understand the muddle that is U.S. immigration policy than to read The Death of Josseline. It helps explain, on a human level, the ebb and flow of human labor across political boundaries.”-Ted Robbins, Southwest correspondent, NPR
