BLACKBALLED BY BUSH: Douglas Massey describes his ouster from a edited UNESCO volume on international migration. He summarizes the main points about international migration that he would have developed in the book chapter for
UNESCO, and their implications for all industrial nations. He specifically argues that US policies for militarizing the US-Mexican border and for criminalizing the hiring of unauthorized workers are counterproductive.
IMAGE SUGGESTIONS: images of the US/Mexican border

models, too many to mention.
