In the contemporary era of the securitisation of risk, control of migration is becoming an increasingly important task for contemporary policing and criminal justice agencies, particularly in the Australian context. This chapter explores border control from a criminological perspective and introduces key concepts around “crimmigration” and theoretical perspectives on the criminalisation of migration. This chapter pays particular attention to the gendered impacts of border hardening in Australia, and the lived experiences of women, and in particular mothers, attempting to cross borders in these circumstances.
