breakthroughtv:

A breakdown of what the $47 billion that the U.S. government has proposed for the militarization of the already-secure border with Mexico will buy them.
But what about the human cost?
7 million residents in border areas would be forced to experience life in a war-zone.. complete with drones, video surveillance, radar, and tens of thousands of border patrol agents.. not to mention the potential human rights abuses and racial profiling in border communities that come along with increased militarization.

Receiving asylum requires painting one’s country in racialist, colonialist terms, while at the same time disavowing the United States’ role in contributing to the oppressive conditions that one fled. For queer immigrants in particular, the asylum process is one in which applicants must invoke U.S. “progressiveness” against the backdrop of Third World “backwardness.”

— Queer Migrations: Sexuality, U.S. Citizenship, and Border Crossings. Edited by Eithne Luibhéid and Lionel Cantú, Jr. Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 2005.

Any #Immigration policy that ignores the fundamental difference in the human development index (HDI) between Mexico and the United States is not a sound way to tackle migration from our neighbor.
