9781594518386: Immigration Nation: Raids, Detentions, and Deportations in Post-9/11 America

In the wake of September 11, 2001, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was created to prevent terrorist attacks in the US.This led to dramatic increases in immigration law enforcement - raids, detentions and deportations have increased six-fold. Immigration Nation critically analyses the human rights impact of this tightening of US immigration policy. Golash-Boza reveals that it has had consequences not just for immigrants, but for citizens, families and communities. She shows that even though family reunification is officially a core component of US immigration policy, it has often torn families apart. This is a critical and revealing look at the real life - frequently devastating - impact of immigration policy in a security conscious world.

About the Author:

Tanya Golash-Boza is an Assistant Professor of Sociology and American Studies at the University of Kansas. She has published articles on blackness in Peru, Latino/a identity in the U.S., and the human rights impact of U.S. immigration policies. Her most recent work is a cross-national study of deportees in the Caribbean.

Review:

“This urgent and original book offers an unflinching examination of the current U.S.
deportation system and its many deleterious consequences for immigrant communities
and the nation at large. Tanya Golash-Boza adopts a human rights perspective to shed
light on the ‘immigration industrial complex,’ describing in moving detail the impact on
immigrant communities and families. The accessible writing makes this book an excellent
choice for classroom adoption.”
―Pierrette Hondagneu-Sotelo, Professor of Sociology at the University of Southern
California and author of God’s Heart Has No Borders: How Religious Activists are
Working for Immigrant Rights

“This beautifully written and much-needed book illuminates the convergence of interests
between politicians and corporations by criminalizing immigrants. Built on a fear
of crime and of foreigners, our current draconian immigration policies generate massive
profits through incarceration and law enforcement. Framing her argument in a human
rights perspective, Tanya Golash-Boza outlines the violations and the steps needed to
move toward an immigration policy with a human rights vision.”
―Mary Romero, author of The Maid’s Daughter, Living In and Out of the American Dream
