New Feature on the US-Mexico Border

As a preview of the forthcoming tenth issue of Rolling Thunder, we present two texts about US border policy and policing: The former, Designed to Kill, analyzes US border control policy, exploring how its actual effects and objectives differ from its ostensible purpose. The conclusions are based on several years of firsthand observation of both sides of the border by a participant in No More Deaths. For additional context, Four Stories from the Border offers glimpses into the lives of those who risk death to cross the border.
