The Beast is a must read for anyone concerned about undocumented workers entering the United States. The Beast focuses on the tremendous challenges faced by people trying to enter the US to escape intolerable conditions in their home countries and the added difficulties faced due to increased efforts on the part of the US to reduce the flow. The influence of drug cartels was particularly eye opening.. Whatever your views on immigration reform, The Beast provides first hand insight into the often nightmarish conditions incurred by people looking to leave behind their old lives for something better.

This book brings the " other side " of the picture into the forefront. Being born in the US, I understand how migrents coming here ends up costing the US; hospital costs, taking jobs; just to nane a couple. Now, lets flip the coin; what parent doesn't want to provide a better life for their children? I commend them for their courage. Review by, Pamisue
