For years, journalist Margaret Regan has documented the economic, political, and historical factors that have contributed to the human tragedies at our shared border with Mexico. Having witnessed the many sides of human migration through the Arizona-Sonora borderlands, Regan describes the issues of Mexican immigration to the United States with sensitivity and fairness.

In The Death of Josseline: Immigration Stories from the Arizona Borderlands, Regan puts a human face on the tragedy of migrant deaths in the Arizona wilderness. The book was named a Southwest Book of the Year in 2010 and a Common Read for the national Unitarian Universalist Church.
