內容簡介

Cantú曾是位美墨邊境巡警,他在毒品人蛇橫行流竄的邊境,奮力追捕非法移民──好運的一息尚存、運氣差的只能曝屍荒野。邊境早在他立誓堅守前便形同崩解,偷渡客遭遇的種種殘酷更讓他夜不成眠,Cantú最終選擇離開。但隨著一位墨裔友人因偷渡罪入獄,卸下執法身分的Cantú將以全新的視角再次探問美墨邊境問題!一部滿溢人性關懷的回憶錄。

How does a line in the sand become a barrier that people will risk everything to cross?

Francisco Cantu was a US Border Patrol agent from 2008 to 2012. He worked the desert along the Mexican border, at the remote crossroads of drug routes and smuggling corridors, tracking humans through blistering days and frigid nights across a vast terrain.

He detains the exhausted and the parched. He hauls in the dead. He tries not to think where the stories go from there.

He is descended from Mexican immigrants, so the border is in his blood. But the line he is sworn to defend is dissolving. Haunted by nightmares, he abandons the Patrol for civilian life. And when an immigrant friend is caught on the wrong side of the border, Cantu faces a final confrontation with a world he believed he had escaped.

The Line Becomes a River is timely and electrifying. It brings to life this landscape of sprawling borderlands and the countless people who risk their lives to cross it. Yet it takes us beyond one person's experience to reveal truths about life on either side of an arbitrary line, wherever it is.
