520 1 _ a| The re-scaling of border control and the conflation of migration, crime, and national security in Mexico in the last decade have generated new practices of ‘flow management’ at the southern border with a differentiated impact on migrants. This chapter draws on research findings on Guatemalan im/migrant women (some of whom have been living in Mexico for generations) to examine the kinds of insecurity they face in daily life as migrants of Mayan origin. By engaging with the contextual and specific meanings of in/securities generated by the processes of ‘othering’ experienced by these migrants, especially those with an irregular status, the chapter focuses on the significance of the politics of everyday life and how in/visibility becomes a strategic field of struggle for them, both to ensure daily well-being and to avoid the risks of being detected and the punitive responses that follow. The chapter proposes that where the concepts of citizenship and rights are unlikely to be satisfied for those who need them most, the analytical lens must shift from a normative understanding of rights to the interface between the practices of border control and migrants’ strategies. Understanding in/visibility is introduced as a strategy to help discern the power dynamics that affect their social conditions and the consequences for policy advocacy.
