GRAGEDA BUSTAMANTE, Aaron. Arizona agaist Illigal Immigration (SB1070); the Bivalence of the “Final Solution” concept. Región y sociedad [online]. 2018, vol.30, n.71. ISSN 1870-3925.

The purpose of this paper is to expose the undocumented immigration situation in 2010 in view of the enactment of the SB 1070 law in Arizona. The issue is addressed on the basis of how legislation was dealt with by the social media and the Internet. The hardships suffered by migrants on the Mexican-American border are also addressed. Findings arise by comparing the mnemonic resources in speech and the actions associated with the “Final Solution”. In the debate around the SB 1070 law, the fate of the Jews in Nazi Germany acquired the characteristics of a bivalent “site of memory”; it was useful both for the promoters of and the opponents to this measure in competing for the collective memory in favor of their cause. Using reminiscent objects, it is proven how easily memory is politically used, and it is adapted to cases which have nothing to do with the event they recall.

Palabras llave : Holocaust; border; migration; memory.
