Now in paperback and with a new afterword by the author- an immigration lawyer's journalistic account of keeping American borders and dreams alive.
J. J. Mulligan Sepolveda is an immigration lawyer currently at UC Davis School of Law in their Immigration Law Clinic. He is a former Immigrant Justice Corps fellow and Fulbright Scholar. This is his first book.
"Timely... Sepulveda's perspective as an immigration attorney makes his book especially inspiring and eye-opening, as he shares many harrowing and brave stories of people fighting for asylum, safety, and the very right to live in America." --*STARRED* BOOKLIST REVIEW
"A compassionate and expert window into the netherworlds of
immigration that so few of us see: the jails, the courthouses, the
nonprofit waiting rooms, the hospitals, and the government offices
where the complexities and cruelties of the U.S. immigration system
rear their heads at great human cost. Mulligan Sepulveda is our
guide through these broken systems and reveals the tireless, vital
work of immigration attorneys as they toil without rest to keep
decency, hope and the rule of law alive. -- Lauren Markham,
author of The Far Away Brothers
