In this video, Professor Denise Gilman discusses the human rights impact of the fence along the Texas–Mexico border. According to the DallasNews Watchdog blog, “Late last week, a federal judge in Washington, D.C. sided with Gilman in ruling that the names and addresses of property owners whose land was affected by the border wall project should be disclosed, as the Courthouse News Service reported.”  This information may shed light on the disparate impact that the fence has on minorities and especially on indigenous communities.
