Product Details


“This eye-opening read concludes with signs of hope and suggestions for change.” —Booklist

“This well-researched account is disturbing in its demonstration of the unwitting complicity between the American justice system and an organization born of racist violence . . . A provocative, necessary book about an ongoing hot-button topic.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Jones summons readers concerned about abuse of authority, accountability, human rights, and establishing justice to demand rethinking and revising the USBP’s expansive reach.” —Library Journal

“Incisive . . . Enriched by the author’s brisk prose and lucid analysis of complex legal matters, this is a troubling look at what Americans have sacrificed in the name of border security.” —Publishers Weekly

“For decades, the U.S. Border Patrol has been violating people’s civil rights in the name of national security including implementing security policies that have been responsible for the deaths of thousands. Nobody Is Protected is a page-turning deep dive into the history of America’s largest police force. In riveting prose, Jones sheds an important light on just how vulnerable citizens and non-citizens alike are to federal overreach and law enforcement abuse.” —Jason De León, MacArthur Fellow and author of The Land of Open Graves

“Reece Jones has done something here surprising, illuminating, and, frankly, terrifying. By diving deeper into an issue which has received much attention but lacked a more critical eye, he has presented us with a portrait of how our fears and prejudices about immigration have metastasized into a pressing situation that demands redress. A harrowing, necessary read.” —Jared Yates Sexton, author of American Rule

“If you wondered how it could be possible for the U.S. Border Patrol to pull activists off the streets in Portland, Oregon during the summer of 2020, Nobody is Protected is the book for you. Reece Jones’s rigorously researched book analyzes the Border Patrol’s extraconstitutional powers and explains the legal precedents behind it. It’s also one hell of a page-turner that twists and turns from the ‘Wild West’ to the modern halls of power. It is a book with a purpose: always seeking to answer how the U.S.’s ‘most dangerous police force’ presently operates and how it impacts us all.” —Todd Miller, journalist and author of Build Bridges, Not Walls
