To understand the patterns of violence that echoed through the many stories, I constantly had to shift the analytic lens from the private to the public and the local to the national and transnational in order to reveal how one constitutes the other.

However, like the (im)migrant rights movement, in part, what makes this a social movement is a common ideological goal. In the case of prison abolition, the unifying vision is ending the use of incarceration by creating changes in society and addressing the root causes of social inequities. Although, as discussed in chapter 5, the strategies employed by this movement can often lead to their appropriation by the state and further entrenchment of prisons, the vision remains abolitionist. (Im)migration is a fundamental concept interrogated throughout the study.
Furthermore, emphasis is placed on the signiﬁcance that controlling the sexuality and reproduction of women of color assumes in this process. 13 I am familiar with arguments that contend that analyzing the experiences of Latinas/os through the experiences of Blacks reinforces a Black/white binary that erases the particular histories of Latinas/os. My contention is that criminality in the United States developed in direct relationship to Blackness, and anti-Black logics have informed the criminal legal system throughout history (including westward expansion and the conquest of Mexican territories), all the way to the present moment.
