Migrant Deaths and Border Managing.

More than 50 migrants died in a trailer in the sweltering heat of Texas, as part of a rising toll of deaths of people trying to cross the border. A coalition of human rights and environmental groups warn that the number of migrant deaths along the scorching borderlands will only grow as climate change makes the Southwest one of the fastest warming regions of the US. In order to save lives from extreme heat, they question the current deterrence policy and propose a new, humanitarian, climate-informed way to manage the border.
