About this title

Synopsis:

Over recent decades, the Southeast has become a new frontier for Latin American migration to and within the United States, and North Carolina has had one of the fastest growing Latino populations in the nation. Here, Hannah Gill offers North Carolinians from all walks of life a better understanding of their Latino neighbors, bringing light instead of heat to local and national debates on immigration.

Exploring the larger social forces behind demographic shifts, Gill shows both how North Carolina communities are facing the challenges and opportunities presented by these changes and how migrants experience the economic and social realities of their new lives. Latinos are no longer just visitors to the state but are part of the inevitably changing, long-term makeup of its population. Today, emerging migrant communities and the integration of Latino populations remain salient issues as the U.S. Congress stands on the verge of formulating comprehensive immigration reform for the first time in nearly three decades. Gill makes connections between hometowns and the increasing globalization of people, money, technology, and culture by shedding light on the many diverse North Carolina residents who are highly visible yet, as she shows, invisible at the same time.

Book Description:

"In this thoughtful, well-researched, and vital book, Hannah Gill humanizes the abstract, politicized issue of immigration, its impact, and how the United States handles it. Although focused on North Carolina, this book could be about any state in the Union and is an important resource to understanding how immigration connects us ever more tightly as a global family. Gill's scholarship is the best kind--informing the mind and the heart and, therefore, making us more informed communicators, thoughtful citizens, and compassionate human beings."--Julia Alvarez, award-winning author of Return to Sender and In the Time of Butterflies
