From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-7-The tone of this title is set by a photograph of President "George W. Bush, Jr." in the midst of a throng of newly naturalized U.S. citizens with the Statue of Liberty in the background. Kerrigan makes a point of frequently praising the enterprising spirit and valuable skills of new immigrants and makes reference to the country's tarnished past regarding quotas, racism, and the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. The Border Patrol is depicted as protecting not only the nation's safety, but also the personal safety of illegal aliens. Grim accounts of Mexicans left to die in the desert by human "coyotes" and Chinese refugees suffocating to death in trucks while trying to cross borders are included. Dramatic photographs of arrests, the infamous raid on the Florida refuge of El'an Gonzalez, and construction of a huge fence along the U.S.-Mexico border intensify the text's emotional appeal. A simple glossary, a chronology of some significant events in INS history, and the agency's Web-site address are useful supplements. Despite the sometimes flowery language, enough substance is supplied to give a clear understanding of the purposes and activities of this agency.
