Immigration is one of the most heated and widely debated topics in national politics today, but rarely do facts and data from the border influence a large part of that discussion. Instead, popular misinformation and political rhetoric have longed colored the way we see our border and immigrant populations, leading the severe dehumanization of migrants and their families, as well as the perpetuation and expansion of harmful and inhumane policies. It’s time to shift the debate and stop accepting rhetoric as truth. Only when we are fully informed about the reality on the border can we come together to create lasting, just and humane change.
