Lost Inside: The Migrant Death Crisis on the U.S. - Mexico Border

Public Lecture by Brad Jones, Ph.D.
Lost Inside: The Migrant Death Crisis on the U.S. - Mexico Border

In the mid-1990s, the U.S. government implemented a policy known as "prevention-by-deterrence." This policy, which relied on extensive border barriers and the use of the hostile terrain of the Arizona desert, was meant to deter unauthorized entry into the United States.  Instead, prevention-by-deterrence led to a massive increase in the number of migrant deaths.  This talk examines the policy choices made by the U.S. government as well as humanitarian efforts to mitigate the number of migrant deaths.
