No One Is Illegal debunks the leading ideas behind the often-violent right-wing backlash against immigrants, revealing their deep roots in U.S. history. This vital book highlights the history of white vigilante violence in the U.S., drawing parallels with today’s Minutemen Project; examines the role of U.S. corporations in the Mexican economy, and the role of immigrant labor in the U.S. economy; reveals how patterns in U.S. immigration policy and campaigns to scapegoat immigrant workers are shaped by the needs of business and politicians; and offers an insightful analysis of the most recent battles over immigrant rights.
The authors also remember the long tradition of resistance to vigilante and state-sponsored racism among immigrants organizing in the factories and the fields, and chart a course toward justice and equality for immigrants in the U.S.

I'm not sure this narrator correctly pronounced a single Spanish word in this book... which is almost entirely about the American southwest. Also, does a different high pitched voice for women and tries to do different accents, but fails. I loved the content, but I cringed throughout at the performance. Don't try to "sound Mexican" or "sound like a woman" - it's insulting.
