Notes
  • In efforts to avoid detection by border enforcement agents, un-documented migrants from Latin America often risk life and limb to enter the U.S. Most commonly, they walk two to four days through an inhospitable desert in hopes of being picked up and whisked away to their final destination. Cost in human lives not withstanding, the price of this venture correlates to increased bor-der enforcement. Interviews with repatriated migrant women on the border helps uncover this economic “underbelly” of transna-tional movement in what I dub the ABCs of migration costs: those related to assembling, bajadores (border bandits), and coyotes.
