This book reinforced something I already suspected- Build A Wall is an exact opposite of what we should be doing as a nation. Like the idea of walling off the kitchen from the rest of your home- it's not only a dumb idea but close to impossible to live with at this point. The United States and Mexico are so intertwined in so many ways that we are going to have to be good neighbors to each other like it or not. I thought the book was well researched and was a quick read because it wasn't written for academia but everyone. I'd hand it over to a high school student studying civics with no problem.
Please note that I received a free advance E ARC of this book from NetGalley without a review requirement or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that, I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.
