"The Most Militarized Community in the United States"...
"Undocumented migrants are the ostensible targets, but border patrol agents have long indicated that Tohono O’odham [Native Americans] are also in the crosshairs ... Tohono O’odham aboriginal land, in what is now southern Arizona, historically extended 175 miles into Mexico, before being sliced off—without the tribe’s consent—by the 1853 Gadsden Purchase. As many as 2,500 of the tribe’s more than 30,000 members still live on the Mexico side. Tohono O’odham people used to travel between the United States and Mexico fairly easily on roads without checkpoints to visit family, go to school, visit a doctor or, like Estevan, a traditional dancer, perform ceremonial duties ... In March 2018, Joaquin Estevan was on his way back home to Sells, Ariz., after a routine journey to fetch three pots for ceremonial use from the Tohono O’odham community of ... Sonora, Mexico (where he grew up)—a trek his ancestors have made for thousands of years ... But when Estevan handed over his tribal card for identification, as he had done for years, to the stationed Border Patrol agent, he was accused of carrying a fraudulent ID, denied entry to Arizona and sent back to Mexico."
How much aggressive impunity will Border Patrol get away with before America makes them stop?
