Are the days of “Give us your tired, your poor” over in America?  What incremental changes in U.S.  immigrant-detention and border security policy has the Obama Administration brought to the issue?  What are the obstacles to implementing reforms?
Joe Richey, a Boulder writer, has followed the militarization of the US-Mexico border and human rights abuses suffered by “the crossers” since 2005.  He has written on this topic for “Expansíon,” a Time magazine subsidiary in Mexico City, and for alternative media in the United States.
