Run For the Border

Steven W. Bender

NYU Press

Tackling the other contentious border issue today, this chapter articulates the facet of the proposed harm reduction agenda that sweeps aside the current protocol in which undocumented immigration, drug trafficking, and the amorphous terrorist threat define our U.S.-Mexico border agenda and push us toward militarizing the border to no avail in stopping entries. The drug reform proposal couples decriminalization of certain less harmful drugs with an increased regulatory emphasis on the demand side in the form of funding addiction and treatment programs.

Keywords:   Mexico, U.S.-Mexico border, drugs, drug trafficking
