The iconic abolitionist activist Angela Davis once wrote that “walls turned sideways are bridges.” This creativity and openness to our fellow humans — this bridge-building — is what we need to do to address the unfolding crises of climate change, mass migration, and late-stage capitalism, according to investigative journalist and author Todd Miller. Miller has spent decades studying the politics of border regions, tracing the human and environmental toll of decades of militarization, forced displacement, and detention. His fourth and latest book on the subject, Build Bridges, Not Walls, from City Lights Books, makes an abolitionist case against borders.

A Trump Supporter Spent $30 Million Building The ‘Lamborghini’ Of Border Walls, And Now, He Desperately Needs Someone To Buy It
After essentially dropping $30 million of his own money on a private, three mile long border wall in Texas, frequent Fox News contributor and Trump supporter Tommy Fisher is kind of hoping maybe the Biden administration or a wealthy patriot will pick up the tab for what he calls the “Lamborghini” of border walls.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas is beginning to arrest migrants on trespassing charges along the U.S.-Mexico border. Authorities said Thursday that at least 10 people have been jailed so far and more are expected in the coming weeks. The arrests are part of Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s actions that he says are needed to slow the number of border crossings. He has also said he would continue building former President Donald Trump's border wall and called on other governors to deploy law enforcement to the southern border.
Issues at the border have largely focused on illegal immigration. Gov. Greg Abbott issued a disaster declaration in May, which authorized the Republican to request the reallocation of $250 million toward construction of a southern border wall. States have also responded to calls from Abbott by sending their own troops to the Lone Star State to increase security at the border.
