A response to The Devil’s Highway by Luis Alberto Urrea – the story of how a large group of men attempted to cross the border from Mexico into the U.S. via “The Devil’s Highway” a 120 mile desert track from Sonoyta, Mexico to San Luis, Arizona. This is an unflinching look at the chaos and danger on America’s southern border and the ways that our policies, from administration to administration, can have far-reaching implications for the lives of millions of people on either side of that border. Borderlands will examine the crisis on our southern borders; what it means for a nation to have borders in a global world, the changing nature of immigration and what it means to be an American and, crucially, who gets to decide what, “being an American” really means.
