The Border Hacker: How a Migrant Hacker Utilized His Computer Skills to Come Back Home

You are here

This episode of the podcast Snap Judgment, produced by ISSI graduate student in residence Levi Vonk, features an interview with an undocumented Afro-Latino computer hacker named Axel, who details his experiences trying to make his way back to the U.S from Guatemala through Mexico after being deported and separated from his family. Using only an old computer, Axel maps out a trail through treacherous, unfamiliar terrains that would lead him to catch up to a Central American migrant caravan, meet Levi, and eventually, arrive at the southern Border.
