Item Details

Terry Kirkpatrick worked one of the toughest jobs in America: a U.S. Customs agent on the border between Arizona and Mexico. He's seen it all and done more for over twenty years in a job that many officers quit before they make it six months. These are the gritty and graphic true stories of Terry and his fellow "Border Rats" as they patrol America's modern badlands, where bullets are currency and blood is taken as payment. From the inhuman conditions people suffer under to get onto American soil, to working with blatantly crooked military leaders, to some of the most insane and unbelievable situations ever survived, readers will experience the chaos that has engulfed the U.S. border in the words of a man who has been there. "Terry Kirkpatrick tuvo uno de loas trabajos más duros en los Estados Unidos: fue un agente de aduanas de los EE.UU. en la frontera entre Arizona y México. Lo ha visto todo y un poco más, después de pasar más de veinte años en un trabajo al que muchos oficiales renuncian en menos de sies meses. Estas son las historias crudas y gráficas de Terry y sus compañeros, "Las ratas de la frontera", que patrullan las tierras yermas de los Estados Unidos, donde las balas son la moneda y la sangre se toma como pago. A través de las palabras de un hombre que ha estado ahí, los lectores podrán sentir el caos que se ha apoderado de la frontera de los EE.UU.: desde las condiciones inhumanas que sufren las personas para llegar a suelo estadounidense hasta líderes militares descaradamente corruptos, pasando por algunas de las situaciones más descabelladas e increíbles." --P. [4] of cover.
