At the bus stop just now someone rolled down their window to yell, “your eyebrows are flawless!!!” before driving away.

According to CBP data, 445 immigrants died along the U.S. southwest border in 2013, many in the Rio Grande Valley sector of Texas. 

In a neglected cemetery an hour’s drive north of the Mexican border, the graves of unknown immigrants lay hidden among and beneath the marked gravestones of others.

“They’re buried throughout the cemetery,” explains Baylor University’s Lori Baker, who heads a team of more than 30 archaeologists and forensic students.

The team has unearthed a mass grave of undocumented immigrants — dozens of bodies found in an unmarked corner of the Sacred Heart Burial Park in Falfurrias, Texas, nearly 80-miles from the border.

"There’s no dignity in someone being buried in trash bags.”

Capitalism would have us believe that we only deserve to be here because of what we produce, and even in our counter- cultures, even in our movements we reproduce the same idea. We only deserve to be here because of what we can produce that other people will buy with their money, time or attention. Our experience of our own lives is secondary, it is only the means of production, it is the products that matter, and unless we make ourselves into both factories and widgets we are not valuable.
