Crimmigration, the merger of criminal law and migration law, affects disproportionately intersectional women at the border. From Australian offshore detention practices to the US, Canada and the UK borders, intersectional women are considered out of place, and are scrutinised, abused and violated. Immigration officers’ powers are growing in the field of criminal law without significant training in relevant areas and without being subjected to the rule of law, owing to the justification of the border as an exceptional space where legal protections ordinarily owed to individuals are suspended due to security imperatives.
