The objective of this paper is to reflect on new and increasingly subtle forms of aggression against marginalized groups. In particular, it addresses the case of immigrants who are constantly subjected to state, police, and citizen surveillance and control. The article is organized into three sections corresponding to the main and sub-themes. The first section addresses the Foucaultian notion of State Racism defined as the condition for the sovereign exercise of power to be legitimately articulated in a society. The second section refers to the critical debate proposed by the French academic Didier Bigo on the securitization of migration, understood as the one that justifies coercive and discriminatory practices towards those who cross borders. Finally, based on the proposal of the philosopher and sociologist Jean Baudrillard, the last section of the article concludes with an analysis on the violence of the current system dominated by an exclusionary productive order in which personal interest reigns and where life and the link with the other are commodified producing “disposable” subjects.
