Abstract: The twenty-first century humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexican border is fueled by U.S. international and domestic policies. As the human race evolves and crises emerge, we can look to the past for answers. Jane Addams, a great feminist thinker and American Pragmatist, faced many of the same basic issues and found ways to improve the human condition. This manuscript conducts a content analysis of the performance and accountability reports of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection to view the language used by the agency in the management and security of the border. It provides an alternative perspective regarding security management and argues that in order to advance socially, policy makers, business leaders, and civil society need to reinsert the praxis of American pragmatism back into their processes.
