I was released today because I am a low priority and not considered a threat. I would argue that the 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country are not a threat either.

Jose Antonio Vargas, who has chronicled in minute detail the twists and turns of his life as a Filipino living illegally for years in the United States, was detained by the Border Patrol for most of the day on Tuesday and then released with a notice to appear before an immigration judge.

a lot of people talk like capitalism is necessary to have innovation and I just think of all the brilliant and creative people I know who spend all of their time and energy worrying about how they’re going to have a roof over their heads and food to eat. capitalism doesn’t drive innovation, it stifles it and shackles it to the endlessly wasteful machinery of exploitation.

A hit pop song is sweeping Central America, called “La Bestia.” It’s about a freight train that migrants often brave from South Mexico up to the US border, with the hopes of crossing - often illegally. People are kidnapped, raped, robbed, and murdered on the train. The song warns of the dangers of taking the train to illegally emigrate. Like most pop songs, it’s completely manufactured. Unlike most pop songs, it’s manufactured by the US government. More specifically, it’s part of US Customs and Border Protection’s Dangers Awareness Campaign, and it was commissioned to deter South Americans from making the trek to the US border. The Resident discusses how pop songs are all kind of “prop” songs in the end.
