In this chapter we discuss how traditional policing agencies are being shaped by the political emphasis on border control, consider whether immigration authorities are becoming more police-like, and identify how other government and non-government agencies are being brought into a migration policing role. We do so by focusing on Australia, a nation which has expended significant political, material, and ideological efforts on crafting an expansive border policing regime over the past 15 years.
