Abstract

In 2010, we witnessed a series of events showing the shifting state of clandestine migration all along the border between Mexico and the United States. This article, based on interviews with people deported by U.S. authorities, reviews several themes rarely looked at in the literature, and brings newperspectives to better known topics. These are all integral parts of the network of violence woven into the experiences of border crossings. The authors discuss different  manifestations of that violence as they explain both the structural forces that spawn and characterize it and individual reactions to these factors.
