Signed into law

by George W. Bush,

the Secure Fence Act of 2006

mandated the construction

of almost 700 miles

of barrier fences

and technological systems

designed to monitor

the expanse of boundary.

Deadly Crossing

 

In 2012,

sheriff's deputies

in Brooks County

found 129 bodies,

around double the amount

from the year before

and six times

the number recorded in 2010.

 

Most of those who die

succumb

to the punishing heat

and rough terrain

that comprise the ranch lands

of south Texas.

 

Reuters photographer,

Eric Thayer,

traveled

to Brooks County, Texas

and Reynosa, Mexico

to investigate

the rising rates

of immigrant deaths

along the border there,

spending time

at a migrant's hostel in Mexico

and with U.S. Border Patrol

in Brooks County.

 

Many migrants,

after spending several weeks

traveling through Mexico

and past the Rio Grande,

spend a few days

in a "stash house,"

such as Casa del Migrante,

in Reynosa, Mexico,

and many are ignorant

of the treacherous journey ahead.

Borderline Ridiculous

 

September 16, 2011

The New York Times

 

The United States is home to 11 million illegal immigrants. The undocumented hold jobs, have children, pay taxes, use government services — and too often live in fear. What is to be done about them? It’s a difficult question, and one the Republican presidential candidates in the last two debates spent a great deal of effort avoiding.

Unlike Ronald Reagan, none of these Republicans favor “amnesty,” and President George W. Bush’s comprehensive solution — tougher enforcement and legalization, with penalties — has gone nowhere. Comprehensive reform is President Obama’s answer, too, which means no Republican today dares support it.

Asked about illegal immigrants, the candidates settled on the simplest-sounding response: seal the border. What about immigrants already here? Same answer: seal the border. This was both a nonanswer and a call for billions in new government spending, which was very strange to hear from politicians also determined to slash even the most basic public services any chance they get. The seal-the-border answer is not only not a solution, it cynically misrepresents what’s happening on the ground. It falsely paints the border region as a dangerous place when American border cities are among the safest in the country. It also denies the fact that Presidents Bush and Obama have already spent years and billions on border fencing, more Border Patrol officers and National Guard troops, spy planes, even seismic sensors.

As for spending billions more to stanch the “flood,” illegal crossings are at the lowest they have been in decades, because of the fence and the terrible economy.

We were hoping that Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, Rick Perry of Texas and Jon Huntsman of Utah would at least offer sensible solutions, having dealt with the reality of immigration in their years as governors. But reality is clearly not on the agenda.

Mr. Romney has slipped into and out of practically every immigration position possible. He endorsed President Bush’s call to create a path to citizenship, but when Senators John McCain and Edward Kennedy offered a bill to do just that, he opposed it. As governor he blocked in-state tuition for undocumented students. He now opposes “amnesty,” rejects a “special deal” on legalization and supports building a fence, “technologically.”

Mr. Perry maintains that fencing off Texas’s 1,250-mile border is too expensive. Instead, he favors more troops and spy planes. Mr. Huntsman, who once endorsed comprehensive reform and driver’s licenses for the undocumented, called Mr. Perry’s skepticism about a fence “pretty much a treasonous comment.”

Mr. Perry was also attacked for signing a bill giving in-state tuition to the undocumented. “I’m proud that we are having those individuals be contributing members of our society rather than telling them, ‘You go be on the government dole,’ ” he explained. For that he was booed.

But even this assertion of an old American ideal — of immigrants as contributing members of society — was only a faint echo of Mr. Perry’s former moderation. In 2001, he told The Dallas Morning News that he was “intrigued” by and “open to” President Bush’s comprehensive reform approach. A legalization plan, he said then, was better than “illegal immigrants living in fear of the law and afraid to access basic services.” That’s the definition of a sensible, pro-American immigration policy. Today, it’s also Republican heresy.
