Summary 'Border Lives' tells the story of former, current, and future border crossers who live in Tijuana and use the border as a resource to construct their livelihoods. Drawing on almost a year and a half of ethnographic data, Sergio Chavez demonstrates the ways in which the border can be both a resource and a constraint on people's lives.
