This casebook is the first to focus on the interaction of the U.S. legal system with Mexican law in the border region.  The work presents American court decisions supplemented with the author’s commentary and study questions.  As the U.S.-Mexico border has generated a wide array of controversies, the casebook covers boundary questions, border detentions, immigrants’ rights, family law, real estate transactions, finance and trade, torts, crimes, environmental law, and Mexican law within the United States.  It will teach law students in law, public policy, and undergraduate courses about the power and limitations of law in resolving border-related disputes. 

“Reich provides students and scholars alike with a compelling framework for understanding how laws made on one side of the border can fashion quite dramatically the lives of people living on the other side of the border (or who wish to cross “la linea” in search of economic security)...Reich’s analytical commentary and discussion questions will draw students into spirited debate, but a debate informed by thoughtfully presented case studies rather than toxic polemic. Law professors, legal historians, and attorneys with clients who have transnational legal needs will find Reich’s casebook quite useful; law students, including undergraduates enrolled in legal studies programs, will benefit from Reich’s ability to make accessible some very complex material.”— Professor Michael M. Brescia, The University of Arizona
