Product Details


“The tension within the pages of Between the Fences hinges on the narrator, son of an undocumented Mexican laborer, trained as a protestant minister. Hefner invites the readers to share in his own limitations and frustrations as he struggles to find—then to maintain—the courage to challenge the corruption in the face of indifferent-to-hostile federal agencies.” –San Antonio Current

“A valuable first-person account of an important and timely subject.” –Publishers Weekly

“People who care about social justice and America’s image in the world should read former prison guard, Tony Hefner’s disturbing account of sexual and physical abuse at Port Isabel. We need to know. Was Port Isabel an isolated case of prisoner abuse or does similar abuse occur at other detainee centers? Has the abuse ended at Port Isabel or does it still occur?” –Carol M. Swain, editor of Debating Immigration
