This article analyzes what can happen to forced returnees upon arrival in their country of nationality. Subjective configurations of state agents in the Global South have created return risks, which in turn transform subjectivities of post-colonial citizens. The article contributes to this Special Issue by tracing repercussions of the externalization and internalization of border controls.

The governments of Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey are all jockeying to be the main source of the 25,000 Syrian refugees to be selected for Canada’s new resettlement program. Close to four million Syrians are currently living in UN refugee camps, informal settlements, on the streets and in crowded apartments in those three countries, straining the resources of each. But Michelle Cameron, Canada’s ambassador to Lebanon, said the eventual breakdown of how many refugees are selected from each of the countries will depend on one thing — who needs resettlement most.

The House voted overwhelmingly Thursday to drastically tighten screening procedures on refugees from Syria, seizing on the creeping fear stemming from the Paris attacks and threatening to undermine President Obama’s Middle East policy.

Elizabeth Lopez swam across the Rio Grande 19 years ago to come to America, where she began cleaning houses and raising three daughters in this city of swaying palm trees at the southern tip of Texas.

The letter also called for an independent investigation into allegations of systemic medical neglect and abuse there, which an ICE internal watchdog alleged to have contributed to the death of at least one detainee.

"A woman and two young children drowned, and seven people were missing, after an inflatable dinghy carrying dozens of migrants from Turkey hit rocks near the Greek island of Lesbos, the Greek authorities said on Sunday as fears rose of more deaths amid worsening weather conditions. An additional 53 people made it ashore after the dinghy sank shortly before dawn on Sunday in choppy waters on a very windy day, according to an official at the Greek Shipping Ministry. The dead children were 2 and 7 years old, and their ethnicity was not known, the official said."

" French taxpayers are spending tens of thousands of euros a week on a private aeroplane that flies migrants from Calais to other French towns, only for most to return. The practice, revealed by StreetPress, a French investigative website, has been condemned as an extraordinary waste of public money. French border police argue that it is necessary to move the migrants because their station in Coquelles, near Eurotunnel’s terminal outside Calais, has space for only 79 people in its cells"
