Jeremy Slack is an Assistant Professor in the Sociology and Anthropology Department at the University of Texas at El Paso. With over 15 years of research along the U.S. Mexico border, his new book explores how the explosion of drug related violence has impacted migration, namely through the rise in kidnapping, extortion and forced recruitment. By living and working in migrant shelters from Tamaulipas to Tijuana, Deported to Death gives a rare look at the intimate ways that deportees and migrants are tested, targeted, interrogated and controlled in Mexican border cities.
