Description: An increasingly militarized border region has deeply embedded immigration enforcement policy into the daily lives of residents, including farmworkers living and working in the region. Objective: The institutionalization of ethno-racial profiling in immigration and local law enforcement, and the sanctioned use of Mexican appearance as probable cause for citizen inspection is a potential structural determinant of health yet to be explored.  Research:  data manipulation including conducting qualitative ad quantitative data analysis, results generation and manuscript development.
