Surveillance is the linchpin of the overall border enforcement regime Anil Kalhan 14 , Associate Professor of Law at Drexler University and chair of the New York City Bar Association's International Human Rights Committee, “Immigration Surveillance,” 74 Md. L. Rev. 1 , ? article=3646&context=mlr Far from being a clear, fixed line that is coextensive with the territorial border, the picture of the migration border that emerges is a worldwide, pointillist archipelago of layered boundary points , both fixed and mobile . New immigration surveillance technologies are what make this reconfiguration of the migration border possible. To police this deterritorialized boundary, federal immigration authorities cooperate and coordinate with an enormous number of public and private actors—both within and outside the United States—to collect, analyze, store, and share biometrics and other personal information, to identify individuals, to monitor and control mobility, and in some instances to detain individuals or otherwise restrain their liberty.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
