B. T. Lenox grew up with two brothers in the suburbs of southeast San Diego where Mexicans worked both legally and illegally for neighbors and friends. She often overheard stories of capture and abuse, and witnessed border patrol agents taunt and threaten migrant workers. She now lives in a state where actors and immigrant actors become politicians, politicians that attain the title of President.

In this interview, you will learn why she wrote a book that points an accusatory finger at the Border Patrol and the politicians who are dealing with illegal immigration. Lenox details how border patrol agents use some extreme, horrific methods in their attempt to deal with illegal immigrants. Regardless of your personal stance on this hot topic, Ms. Lenox's portrayal of illegal immigration enforcement will certainly make you think.

Book Synopsis

In 1979, four of the toughest boys in town vomit and weep when they stumble across Border Patrol agents who covertly exterminated caged, illegal aliens with kerosene and a single cigarette. Later, as adults, two of the boys discover that the same practices still secretly exist and are sanctioned by both the State and Federal authorities to further political careers.
Beyond the Border is a story about an attorney, Mike Phillips, fighting for the rights of illegal aliens--unknowingly and feloniously aided by a Columbian ally—but undermined by a staircase of politicians and political platforms that escalates to the Presidency and the future Presidency.
