Border Security Affects the Way Migrants Are Defined in the Societies They Enter and/or Exit
Border security is used as tool to control who arrives and exits the social space that states encompass. This control is not only physical, but it is also symbolic. That is, state border security attempts to control the agency that migrants have when moving across different borders. As a result, trans-boundary migrants are not always seen as a part of the societies they enter or exit. Border security relies on a set of logics and collected data on migrants that affect how they are incorporated. Alternative methods for migrants to move across borders should be created. Thus, migrants would be able to enfold the various societies they encounter without restrictions.
