Jacob Soboroff MSNBC

Jacob Soboroff Book
Soboroff is the author of Separated; Inside an American Tragedy. The book explores the Trump administration’s systemic separation of migrant families at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The Amazon review reads; “In June 2018, Donald Trump’s most notorious decision as president had secretly been in effect for months before most Americans became aware of the astonishing inhumanity being perpetrated by their own government. Jacob Soboroff was among the first journalists to expose this reality after seeing firsthand the living conditions of the children in custody. His influential series of reports ignited public scrutiny that contributed to the president reversing his own policy and earned Soboroff the Cronkite Award for Excellence in Political Broadcast Journalism and, with his colleagues, the 2019 Hillman Prize for Broadcast Journalism.
Soboroff has spent the past two years reporting the many strands of this complex narrative, developing sources from within the Trump administration who share critical details for the first time. He also traces the dramatic odyssey of one separated family from Guatemala, where their lives were threatened by narcos, to seek asylum at the U.S. border, where they were separated—the son ending up in Texas, and the father thousands of miles away, in the Mojave desert of central California. And he joins the heroes who emerged to challenge the policy, and who worked on the ground to reunite parents with children.
In this essential reckoning, Soboroff weaves together these key voices with his own experience covering this national issue—at the border in Texas, California, and Arizona; with administration officials in Washington, D.C., and inside the disturbing detention facilities. Separated lays out compassionately, yet in the starkest of terms, its human toll, and makes clear what is at stake in the 2020 presidential election.”
Jacob Soboroff Katie Miller
Jacob wrote in his book that Katie Miller, former spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security, told him she was sent to the southern border to see the plight of migrant families in an attempt to make her “more compassionate,” but it “didn’t work.”
Soboroff writes that Miller said her “family and colleagues told me that when I have kids I’ll think about the separations differently. But I don’t think so. … DHS sent me to the border to see the separations for myself — to try to make me more compassionate — but it didn’t work.” Soboroff said he was astonished by Miller’s remarks, and asked her: “Are you a white nationalist?” She responded, “No, but I believe if you come to America, you should assimilate. Why do we need to have ‘Little Havana’?”
