The Line Becomes A River by Francisco Cantú

"The Line Becomes a River" is a memoir that delves into the complex and often harsh realities of the U.S.-Mexico border, as experienced by a former Border Patrol agent. The author recounts his personal journey, from his initial idealistic desire to understand border issues to the moral conflicts he faces witnessing the suffering of migrants. Through vivid narratives that blend his own experiences with those of the people he encounters—migrants striving for a better life, and fellow agents caught in the system—the book offers a poignant exploration of the physical and psychological borders that define both the landscape and the human lives involved.
