Reviews

As a correspondent for NBC News, Soboroff was among the the first to report on the Trump administration's family separation policy; here, he digs deeper into its roots and consequences.--New York Times Book Review, New & Notable
Soboroff's thoroughly engaging exposé of the inner workings of a corrupt and unfeeling government is essential to understanding America's current immigration misery.--Booklist (starred review)
Fantastic. ... Serves as a blueprint, honestly, for everything that we are seeing now in the pandemic, everything wrong with this administration, it's all right there in black and white. ... The book is fantastic, the reporting is fantastic. --Chris Hayes
Jacob Soboroff's excellent reporting at the border helped shine a light on Trump's cruel family separation policy. His new book, Separated, is a sobering account of what he saw and the human toll of the Trump agenda.--Julián Castro
"This book is important. Everyone should read it. We have to face our demons as a country, and this is an opportunity to face our demons." --Joy-Ann Reid
The seminal book on the child-separation policy.--Rachel Maddow, The Rachel Maddow Show
Jacob Soboroff zooms in on President Trump and his administration's decision to separate children from their parents as a deterrent to border crossers. In doing so, he illuminates how, in the face of congressional inaction, a cadre of presidential advisers can introduce policies with shocking, unintended consequences.--Laura Wides-Muñoz, Washington Post
To experience the pain and anger many suburban voters felt about Trump's policy of ripping children from the arms of their asylum-seeking parents along the southern border, I'd recommend Separated: Inside an American Tragedy by Jacob Soboroff.--Eugene Robinson, Washington Post
"Groundbreaking. ... All the original reporting in this book is extraordinary." --Andrea Mitchell
