Posted by Brian Escobar on

Yesterday, I talked to a dear friend who is currently looking for an immigration lawyer that can help her re-enter the States so that she can return to continue her undergraduate studies in Vermont. I was numb after the call; I had never realized that this was going to be so personal.

by Beth Harris

In collaboration with the arms industry, private security companies and paramilitaries throughout the world, the US government has created an unprecedented, expansive notion of sovereignty that erases borders to pave the way for corporate interests.
