"Lopez's book is one of the most powerful examples to date of an academic using deep study and radical empathy to indict a profoundly evil system."

"Lopez's style is revolutionary. He demonstrates that an alleged criminal can be a complex human with complex human connections. His book short-circuits narratives at the root of racist policies—about good vs. bad immigrants, legal vs. illegal people—by honoring the complex web around the sinners. When brown sinners are outlawed, their loved ones become prey, too."

"Separated is the result of hours of interviews with those affected, offering gumshoe FOIA-heavy journalism and a deep, empathetic understanding of community."

"No social issues collection, particularly those strong in community makeup and immigration challenges, should be without this hard-hitting survey."

"Separated will leave readers incensed and heartbroken by the dehumanizing machinery of the current immigration system in the United States but also inspired by powerful stories of resilience and Lopez's road map for action and solidarity."

"Separated tells the story of a single daylong immigration raid and its rippling consequences. Lopez unpacks the events of the raid to reveal the intimate effects and broader contexts of aggressive immigrant policing. The result is at once informative, compelling, broadly significant, and absolutely gripping."

"This is a beautifully told, heart-wrenching story of one community's path after deportation. In immersing us in the particular, William Lopez illuminates the larger truth: that policy decisions that drive deportation have deep and long-felt consequences on the well-being of individuals and communities. Understanding this can guide us to what is long overdue: a compassionate immigration policy."

"This riveting account details the far-reaching effects of immigration raids on our social fabric. This book offers both a searing condemnation of racialized policing practices and an inspiring vision for change."
