Borderland acted as the first port of call for immigrants wishing to enter the main areas of Dawnbreak. They often lived and died without ever setting foot into the city itself, upon the whims of Labycore Immigration and Integration services.

Many lived here in tents, with only the clothes on their back, but when the Zombies arrived on shore, the buildings were quickly vacated by Labycore immigration, and the Resistance quickly moved many of the refugees into the buildings where possible, all hoping that they'll someday get past the barriers and into Dawnbreak itself.
