Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier!
Mormons Tried to Stop Native Child Slavery in Utah. They Ended Up Encouraging It, on History.com—“Soon, Mormons were buying slaves regularly in an attempt to save them from their enslavement and to convert them to Mormonism.”
Responding to “The Left Case Against Open Borders,” on Foreign Affairs—“When we talk about enforcing immigration laws, it’s important to be quite specific about what we mean. Immigration enforcement is not words on paper.”N.K. Jemisin Is Trying to Keep the World From Ending, on GQ—“The most critically acclaimed author in contemporary science fiction and fantasy made history this year. Now she’s trying to make the future.”
A Century of U.S. Intervention Created the Immigration Crisis, on Medium—“The liberal rhetoric of inclusion and common humanity is insufficient: we must also acknowledge the role that a century of U.S.-backed military coups, corporate plundering, and neoliberal sapping of resources has played in the poverty, instability, and violence that now drives people from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras toward Mexico and the United States.”
