This week we’ll be looking at the state of immigration and we’ll begin the creative non-fiction work, The Line Becomes a River, a controversial book that was met with a lot of backlash at the time of its publishing, and its critiques continue to this day. We’ll also watch an episode of Immigration Nation from Netflix in order to be given the 1st hand accounts of modern immigration diasporas.
Post 9/11 America saw an upsurge of surveillance, further funding of police and the armed forces, and the creation of ICE. ICE and Border Patrol are two separate organizations, with one tasked with surveilling the US border and the territories near it, and ICE was envisioned to enforce immigration laws.
We’ll be looking at both organization and consider the factors that drive individuals to join them. As the fact that MANY members of both self identify as Latino/a,Hispanic, Latinx, etc.
For this week please begin and finish Part 1 of the book, then each week after you’ll read another part until we conclude this unit.
I will have a zoom session where I’ll stream the episode of Immigration Nation, but thats TBA, and I’ll announce more details on that a week before.
