Fear and trauma in immigration policy

A review of Jason De León and Luis H. Zayas

U.S. immigration policy has long used the imposition of trauma and the dynamics of fear as weapons.

Film

Sin Nombre

In his first feature film, Cary Fukunaga delivers a beautiful and powerful depiction of the lives of Central Americans crossing through Mexico to the United States border. Sin Nombre (Without Name) unfolds mostly on top of trains, and it’s enriched by years of painstaking research, including Fukunaga’s own rides atop Mexican boxcars.
