11: The Spanish Own the Cow

In this episode, Cynthia and Yvette discuss Eduardo Galeano’s Venas Abiertas de América Latina, the gender discrimination case Nguyen vs. INS and the case of Jane Doe — an unaccompanied minor who sought an abortion while detained in immigration custody. They discuss the economics of colonialism, how gender is analyzed under the Equal Protection doctrine, and the myriad ways in which the bodies of migrant womxn are regulated and controlled.
