...and happy, for the tree lies between the Rio Grande and the wall built in that stretch of the border. As such, it is under threat. There are plans to raze everything between the wall and the river to make it easier for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to patrol and monitor the area. Two ICE officers patrolled the area where we stood, the green van sticking closer to the wall than to the river at that point. The tree was an oasis, and looking over the fields that lie to the east and that are also in that in-between space, I had the feeling that no...

...humble study, the first edition of El tíguere dominicano serves as an urtext for virtually every academic work that has addressed the topic of tígueres and tigueraje . The form of this book is that of an “estudio ensayístico,” or book of essays, that sets out to analyze the history, origins, and psychology of the tíguere beyond Damirón’s wary depiction of Santo Domingo’s urban poor. 27 Despite these high ambitions, the book cites only a few academic sources and relies a great deal on anecdotal and informal evidence, thereby demanding a great deal of...

They monitored killings, genocides, torture, and human right abuses propelled by the US government, which trained and contributed millions of dollars to the Central American military in the repression of its peoples. A US sanctuary movement and solidarity groups with the Central American...

.... The soldiers took Montejo as a prisoner to the Huehuetenango army base, where he was interrogated, beaten, and expected to be executed. The text ends with Montejo’s quasi-miraculous survival and subsequent escape across the border to Chiapas, Mexico, where he ended up in a UN-monitored refugee camp. There is no immigration to the United States in the text itself. However, it is public knowledge that Montejo later entered the United States, completed his BA at Bucknell University, and then went on to obtain an MA in anthropology at the State University of New...
