    Abstract This chapter examines identity constructions, and how they promote peace or conflict, in discourse on migration at the US-Mexico border. The present study applies the Positioning Diamond to analyze discourse on migration at the US-Mexico border. According to the Immigrants abuse US taxpayers' storyline, immigrants come to the United States to reap the social benefits that are paid for by US citizens' tax money, but they do not contribute to the system. Reflecting the Immigrants abuse US taxpayers' storyline, the billboard accuses immigrants identified as illegal aliens' of taking jobs away from Americans, and in the press release, Coe accuses immigrants of destroying the future America for their children'. Within the context of various storylines, such as Reconquista', National security', Immigrants abuse taxpayers', and Elite push for open borders', Mexican immigrants are allocated the duty to remain outside of the US.
