An interview with AFSC staff Ricardo Hernández and Fabiola Flores Muñoz on their recent trip to the U.S./Mexico border to assess the human security issues facing those living in the region. 

Fabiola, AFSC's regional director for Latin America and the Caribbean, and Ricardo of AFSC's Integration and Impact unit, discuss their observations of how both governments' policies of increased national security and militarization are negatively impacting life for border communities, and what local civic organizations are doing to support the people most directly impacted.
