abstract

This text contextualises the weaponisation of public health laws during the COVID-19 pandemic by the Donald Trump administration within a longer history of the United States waging war, violence and torture on migrants in its southern borderlands. The use of Title 42 to refuse asylum requests – requests legally mandated by US and international laws – represents the rule, not the exception, within a violent border regime that continues to brutalise migrants.
