U.S/Mexico Border

"Tougher Tactics Deter Migrants at U.S Border" (NY Times) started out as if it was going to be a human interest-type news piece but the human qualities got lost later on while explaining changing immigration tactics. "4100, en memoria de los muertos" in La Prensa, although not going into detail about the new fence and guards at the border, kept a more human appeal by referring to the many migrants that lose their lives at the border as "undocumented" rather than "illegals," as does the Times. Using words such as "illegals" is dehumanizing and makes even women and children out to be criminals.
