At the US-Mexico border, policies of prolonged detention and family separation have made seeking asylum in the United States difficult and dangerous.

It's a clear-eyed call to remember the humanity that's impacted by policy -- and a warning: "History shows us that the first population to be vilified and stripped of their rights is rarely the last," she says.
