THE DEPORTER by Ames Holbrook | Kirkus Reviews
Oct 12, Rachel rated it it was amazing. Having left his government job to pursue other ventures, in this memoir Ames Holbrook looks back on his time as a Detention and Deportation Office in the agency now known as Immigrations and Customs Enforcement. He uses this memoir to share what he has learned from his time on he job, and to reveal the glaring inefficiency and ineffectiveness of the government's efforts to deport criminal aliens.
I feel compelled to emphasize that Holbrook focuses on criminal aliens: Many of them are repeat offenders. And every day, the government is leaking these people out of detention and back onto the American streets.
The Deporter: One Agent's Struggle Against the U.S. Government's Refusal to Expel Criminal Aliens
This book is intended to incite outrage, but I think you'd have to be somewhat of an insider already for a lot of the government's foibles to make sense. Naturally we don't want criminals on the street -- but the red-tape holding up the deportation process and sabotaging counter-terrorism efforts isn't fully explained in this memoir. Of course, once you've been on the inside as long as Holbrook was, it may be hard to talk to the general public.
On the other hand, what really surprised me about this book was the prose. I had expected laborious government-ese -- facts and figures and really dry writing -- but the memoir reads quite like a novel in places. It will require a will and determination that our government has heretofore lacked. Perhaps this book will inspire citizens to put pressure on our government and force it to do its duty.

America needs more dedicated federal agents in the mold of Ames Holbrook. He managed to deport many more serious criminals than the law allowed.

Officials on the Supreme Court, Congress, and Department of State should make this book required reading. They would understand what occurs when they make sweeping increases in criminal's civil rights so that the deportation agents are ordered to release criminals out on the streets. This allows them to murder more citizens.
These additional crimes would not have occurred if the criminal had been deported. Officer Holbrook bent the law s to get rid of as many of these vicious criminal types as he could. I'm not sure what I was expecting when I picked up this book. Certainly not such a gripping and emotional tale of shocking truths so close to home.
The story was easy to read but never dull. Every moment was so rich with detail that at times I felt like I was watching a movie. Even now I'm not sure what to say. The story left me speechless.

Bruno's review hits in on the head for me. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
In fact, I bought each my brothers one for Christmas. If you're looking for an intense but quick read with an everyday hero this is defintely the book for you. Written several years ago, this story explains the sad state of our immigration policies. It helps you to understand why the US is in so much trouble for our lack of will to control all kinds of immigration. One person found this helpful.
The Deporter is a book that every American should read. There is a lot of information in it and I couldn't put it down. Americans really need to know the story behind the story, what the news doesn't tell us about criminal aliens in America. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful.
