Border Games: A Response to Palafox

Andreas’ response clarifies what the book is not about: it was not meant to be a comprehensive examination of the U.S.-Mexico border or of the unauthorized border crossing experience of migrants. His more modest and focused aim was to unpack the logic of border enforcement escalation, focusing on explaining the sharp expansion of drug and immigration control efforts in recent years.
