This chapter opens the discussion of exclusion by addressing public and private efforts to exclude undocumented Latino/a immigrants from local housing and from crossing ranchland in the southwestern states along the U.S.-Mexico border. Public efforts include those of several U.S. cities to prohibit rentals to undocumented immigrants, as well as to restrict the presence in the community of Latino/a day laborers soliciting work. Private efforts include those of southwestern ranchers and their supporters who wield the legal doctrine of trespass to legally and physically exclude transitory immigrant crossings.
