This report highlights the link between violations of immigrants’ rights in the southwestern states of Texas and Arizona and the failure of federal, state and local authorities to enforce immigration laws on the basis of non-discrimination. The report demonstrates that communities living along the border – particularly Latinos and individuals perceived to be of Latino origin, and Indigenous communities – are disproportionately affected by a range of immigration control measures, resulting in a pattern of human rights violations.
