SLACK, Jeremy  and  WHITEFORD, Scott. Viajes violentos: la transformación de la migración clandestina hacia Sonora y Arizona. Norteamérica [online]. 2010, vol.5, n.2, pp.79-107. ISSN 2448-7228.

In 2010, we witnessed a series of events showing the shifting state of clandestine migration all along the border between Mexico and the United States. This article, based on interviews with people deported by U.S. authorities, reviews several themes rarely looked at in the literature, and brings new perspectives to better known topics. These are all integral parts of the network of violence woven into the experiences of border crossings. The authors discuss different manifestations of that violence as they explain both the structural forces that spawn and characterize it and individual reactions to these factors.

Keywords : post-structural violence; Mexico-U.S. border; border crossing; criminalization.
