2258 Notes

A breakdown of what the $47 billion that the U.S. government has proposed for the militarization of the already-secure border with Mexico will buy them.
But what about the human cost?
7 million residents in border areas would be forced to experience life in a war-zone.. complete with drones, video surveillance, radar, and tens of thousands of border patrol agents.. not to mention the potential human rights abuses and racial profiling in border communities that come along with increased militarization.
