Media Roundtable: The Expansion Of The US Border Around The World

May 15, 2020

On this edition of Your Call’s Media Roundtable, we are speaking with independent journalist Todd Miller about his new book Empire of Borders: The Expansion of the US Border around the World.

There are more than 70 border walls around the globe manned by thousands of agents and high-tech surveillance equipment. Miller traces the United States’ role in the rise of the global border regime and how borders pit transnational elites against the world’s poor. 

Guest:

Todd Miller, award winning independent journalist, and author of Empire of Borders: The Expansion of the U.S. Border Around the World
