"Hopping on a plane back home, I would leave behind the surveillance and the border wall, but I couldn’t shake off the people I met."

As a researcher and student, field study is an important part of my work. I first started doing field studies for my Master's thesis in 2017, driving along the US-Mexico border, from San Diego, California to El Paso, Texas. I conducted interviews and sought to gain a practical understanding of the impact the border wall and immigration enforcement practices have on daily life in the borderlands.
