Commentary: Organizing Tensions-From the Prison to the Military-Industrial Complex
This commentary analyzes how interrelated systems–prison and military–intersect and attempt to constrain futures for undocumented youth. Working from their participatory research, including over 40 narratives from the lives and struggles of undocumented and formerly undocumented students, the authors contextualize legislation, such as the DREAM ACT, that offers military service as a potential pathway for legalization.
