I was emailed by Penguin with an opportunity to review this new book about one immigration enforcement agent's story. I'm glad I took up the offer.
From the U.S. immigration bureaucracy to the Supreme Court, America's illegal immigration problem as many of us are well aware, is boiling over with no end in sight, nor with help from the politicians. In The Deporter, former Deportation Officer Ames Holbrook provides a true and compelling account of what it's like on the deportation side of the national immigration nightmare.
The Deporter gives perspective from the midst of the fallout of the insane and emasculated U.S. immigration policies. While Mr. Holbrook pushes to deport murdering and kidnapping criminal aliens whose governments don't want them, our own government pushes back. With a clear, but cumbersome sense of duty, Mr. Holbrook in essence, becomes the Jack Bauer of Immigration Enforcement.
It's a job filled with moral dilemmas; a job where agent Ames Holbrook tries to make sense of his conflicting duty where policy undermines objective. Contrary to the federal government, Ames finds ways to protect the American people.
It was hard to put the book down, and if you thought America's immigration system was bad, wait until you read The Deporter. It is a stirring read.
Check it out at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
