DISAPPEARED part 1: Deadly Apprehension Methods

Deadly Apprehension Methods: The Consequences of Chase and Scatter in the Wilderness.

Part 1 of a three-report series, Disappeared: How the US Border Enforcement Agencies Are Fueling a Missing Persons Crisis.

In this first report, we find that people who cross the border and are never seen again do not merely go missing, they are disappeared by the US border-enforcement system. Using surveys conducted in Nogales and data from Derechos's Missing Migrant Crisis Line, we find that the Border Patrol routinely chases border crossers into remote terrain causing them to scatter, become lost, and often die or disappear.

The Killing Fields of Texas by the Guardian

The Killing Fields of Texas | Beyond the Border Pt.1.

Thousands of immigrants have died on the ranches of Brooks County, Texas.

Most of the deaths occur while migrants are trying to circumvent the US Border Patrol’s inland checkpoint and hike through rugged ranch lands. 

Some ranchers are taking up arms to fight back against the influx of migrants, while others are setting up water stations and trying to save their lives. However, as temperatures rise and the humanitarian crisis continues, the deaths are at an all-time high.
