Re: “Trashing Arizona

Mr. Banks' article deals with only a small piece of the crisis we see in our desert. What disturbs me most about this article is the lack of concern for the people who are risking their lives in our desert, hoping to be able to support their families. We have just received a report that the remains of 48 people have been found in our desert since January. Where is the outrage about that? Does Mr. Banks ever wonder about the desperation that drives people to take such risks? Does he ever consider the role of US trade and border policies in creating this humanitarian crisis? Yes, cleaning up the desert is important. (Many of us participate regularly in such efforts.) But ending the injustices which are the root causes of migrant suffering and deaths as well as the desert trash is the real challenge.
