The U.S. government’s policy of “Prevention Through Deterrence” relies on the harsh conditions of the Sonoran desert to try to deter migrants from crossing into the country from Mexico. Migrants still cross there, however, and face extremely harsh conditions. Many people die on the journey. The Border Patrol blames the “natural” environment rather than addressing how their policies help lead to violence and death. 1. What were De Le n’s key research methods?
