Border Control and Technology

The following resource utilizes articles, images and videos that describe the use of sophisticated technologies to control migration at the border between the United State and Mexico. The goal is to encourage students to understand how technology is not neutral, but functions in complex political and economic contexts, often to foster exclusion of certain racial and ethnic groups.
