#rootsofmigration roots of migration rootsofmigrationThe training at the School of the Americas (renamed the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation) is among the roots causes of migration, that forces people to flee their countries in Latin America. Many immigrants to the United States are victims of U.S.-sponsored military training and atrocities in Latin America. In our fight to close the School of the Americas, we continue to work towards a world that is free of suffering and violence. SOA Watch considers deportation quotas, mandatory detention, for-profit immigration detention centers, the militarization of the border, the "War on Drugs," and the training of repressive forces at the SOA/ WHINSEC, as all parts of the same racist system of violence and domination. A dismantling of these and other policies is needed for there ever to be true "Comprehensive Immigration Reform." #rootsofmigration
