Reviews

"We take our borders for granted--but we shouldn't. People serve and sacrifice every day, in the harshest of environments, facing dynamic situations, with little or no back up. These people are our Border Patrol--and Borderline is their story." --Jocko Willink, #1 Bestselling Author

"Guarding the borders of the United States, and thereby protecting the citizenry, falls to a relatively small and often misunderstood federal law enforcement agency under the Department of Homeland Security. U.S. Customs and Border Protection, more commonly referred to as the Border Patrol, is the country's first line of defense. It is comprised of dedicated Americans who put their lives on the line while being maligned in the press and by politicians with agendas at odds with the safety and security of the very constituents they represent. That rhetoric and those policies put the lives of the brave men and women of the U.S. Border Patrol in greater danger, yet they get up each day to hold the line for us all. Powerful, insightful, and thought-provoking, Borderline by Vincent Vargas is a must read for every American. Before you make a snap judgement about the Border Patrol based on a sound bite, take the time to understand the agency and get to know those who are charged with protecting the nation through the pages of Borderline." --Jack Carr, former Navy SEAL Sniper, host of the Danger Close Podcast, and #1 New York Times bestselling author of the James Reece Terminal List series

"Vargas writes empathetically about the plight of beleaguered migrants, emphasizing the violence and human toll beneath the controversy...a useful insider's perspective regarding the border crisis." --Kirkus Reviews
