1) Read and summarize Falcon and Fregoso’s articles. 1 page
Be sure to address: How are they linking gender violence to the border? How do they think capitalism and national security contribute to gender violence? What do they think is the importance of transnational activism (and what is transnational activism?)
2) Read the other articles that outline different perspectives on immigration reform: pages
a) Donald Trump
b) Republicans for immigration reform (note, there are two blogs cut and paste into the document, read both)
c) Indigenous critiques of immigration reform
d) Escobar: Critiques of anti-Blackness in immigration rights organizing
What are the different assumptions and perspectives behind these debates? Is there any room for common ground? What is your analysis and why?
