    Summary: 
    Few seem to notice or care that the US Border Patrol is monitoring the Super Bowl, as they have for years, one of the many ways that forces once created to police the borders are now being used in an increasingly militarized fashion, to monitor the whole of American society. Miller sounds an alarm as he chronicles this change in our country. Traveling the U.S. and beyond to speak with the people most involved with and impacted by the Border Patrol, he combines these first-hand encounters with careful research to expose a vast and booming industry for high-end technology, weapons, surveillance, and prisons.
