This essay aims to analyze U.S. policies of southern border enforcement in the 19th- and 20th-centuries, which targeted illegal crossings from Mexico onto American soil. In 2006, President George W. Bush signed the Secure Fence Act that endorsed the costruction of a fence along 700 of the 2,000 mile long southern international boundary. This border enforcement is the aftermath of policies that especially from the 1980s onwards aim to respond to the increasing fear in U.S. public opinion relating to the presence of unauthorized migrants in the United States.
Keywords: United States, Mexico, mexican-americans; fence; border, clandestinity.
