    U.S. Border Patrol agents routinely empty water jugs and destroy or remove supplies left for migrants crossing the border in the southern Arizona desert, according to two humanitarian groups based in Tucson. http://www.fronterasdesk.org/content/10963/border-patrol-routinely-empty-water-jugs-left-migrants-report-says
    In Southern Arizona immigrants are in effect funneled into an extremely arid, sparsely populated region with few natural water sources. In the summer months this area of desert regularly experiences temperatures over 100 degrees Fahrenheit and the lack of access to water is a death sentence. http://www.thedisappearedreport.org/part-two.html

    “The Nation That Sits Astride the U.S.-Canada Border : The American Indian community that is upending our understanding of borders – and what makes a country in the first place.” https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/07/01/akwesasne-american-indian-community-218936 “…With 314 reservations and trust lands in the United States encompassing 100 million acres—56 million in the lower 48 states—Indian America is roughly the size of Iceland or South Korea. It is an emerging nation rarely considered by either the United States or the international community in discussions of sovereignty, borders and nationalism. But as challenges and conflicts over existing borders continue from the Palestinian territories to Catalonia, Kurdistan to Taiwan, it may be time for North Americans to give more thought to the unrecognized countries closer to home.”
