The Hard Arm of the State

The Hard Arm of the State

Policing the Border

(p.110) 5 The Hard Arm of the State
The Border

Martin A. Schain

Oxford University Press

In contrast to the orderly control of entry that follows policies and rules, the state must also deal with the breakdown of policy, and the failure to maintain its priorities. This chapter explores the hard arm of border control, and the instruments that have been used to deal with the enforcement and breakdown of policy. It begins by examining how the border is policed, and how policing deals with undocumented entry. It then looks at attempts to enhance the policing of the border with passenger name records and entry/exit systems. The chapter finally examines the increasingly widespread pattern of construction of fences and walls on both sides of the Atlantic, and explores detention and expulsion.
