As Bush Militarizes Border, Local Communities Say No.

Ella | Border communities are united in their opposition to the Goode Amendment, and fear that the placement of National Guard troops on the border with Mexico will further exacerbate the state-of siege mentality that has extended over the region since militarization of the region began, in the name of immigration enforcement and the war on drugs, over a decade ago.
