Immigration and the Next America Archbishop José Gomez has written a personal, passionate and practical contribution to the national debate about immigration pointing the way toward a recovery of America's highest ideals. Immigration is a human rights test of our generation. It's also a defining historical moment for America. The meaning of this hour is that we need to renew our country in the image of her founding promises of universal rights rooted in God. "Immigration is about more than immigration. It's about renewing the soul of America." -- Archbishop José H. Gomez.

 

Behind the Green Card: How Immigration Policy is Killing the American Dream explodes the innumerable myths and bogeymen that obscure the reality of US immigration policy. Blinded by misguided national security interests, the United States has codified a series of unworkable and irresponsible laws which make this country weaker, poorer and less secure than ever. Through the elimination of both a huge marketplace and enormous supply of labor, the US struggles to regain economic growth while other developed nations, through sensible immigration policies, forge ahead.

The Thomas Carroll Affair is a non-fictional account of a Bandit, a Priest, a Renegade and the inferno that engulfed a country nobody knew nor cared about. “I am in a powerful position right now,” Thomas Carroll, said as he planned to spread his visa fraud operation to more American Embassies. In nine months he had amassed eight to twelve million dollars, selling visas and flooding America with drug runners, thieves and rapists. The U.S. rewarded him for using his network to track a rival human trafficking operation, and the spies who used it to infiltrate the United States. Guyana was about to explode and nothing could stop him..


 The Mexican Wall: From the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico (English and Spanish Edition)

The Mexican Wall: From the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. Since mid-2006, Maurice Sherif has been photographing segments of the U.S.-Mexico border wall and questioning how the United States--which sees itself as a champion of law, democracy, and human rights--came to engage in such a project. In his words, "North America is being sliced from sea to shining sea by a metal wall. This metal wall is the United States' answer to the drug industry, to the northward flight of the poor from sinking economies to the south, to every human appetite and need hidden beneath the word 'illegal.'

Governing Immigration Through Crime: A Reader. In the United States, immigration is generally seen as a law and order issue.

Governing Immigration Through Crime offers a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the use of crime and punishment to manage undocumented immigrants.


 

Migrant Remittances and Development in the Global Economy (Disasporas in World Politics) moves beyond the numbers to provide a uniquely comprehensive, historically informed overview and analysis of the complex role of migrant remittances in the global economy.

Living "Illegal": The Human Face of Unauthorized Immigration. In June 2012, President Obama’s executive order enforcing parts of the Dream Act and the Supreme Court’s decision to block components of Arizona’s draconian immigration law propelled the immigration debate back into the headlines once again. Based on oral histories, individual testimonies, and years of research into the lives of ordinary migrants, Living “Illegal” offers richly textured “stories that often get lost in the rhetoric” (Gainesville Sun)—of real people working, building families, and enriching their communities even as the political climate has grown increasingly hostile.


 

The Securitization of Humanitarian Migration: Digging Moats and Sinking Boats. This book examines how western liberal states are progressively restricting access to refugees and asylum seekers, even though these states have signed international agreements obliging them to offer protection to those fleeing persecution and to advocate the spread of human rights and humanitarian principles. Watson examines how refugees and asylum seekers have come to be treated so poorly by these states through the use of policies such as visa requirements, mandatory detention and prevention/return policies.


 

Contested Voices: Women Immigrants in Today's World offers a comprehensive picture of immigrant women today and the impact which public policy, class, race, religion, and ethnicity have on their efforts to adjust to a new environment. Rejecting the notion that all immigrant women have the same experiences in adapting and adjusting to their new environment, the book examines the impact of gendered immigration policy in the receiving country, the attitudes and role expectations of both the citizens in the receiving country.


 

Citizenship Excess: Latino/as, Media, and the Nation (Critical Cultural Communication). Drawing on contemporary conflicts between Latino/as and anti-immigrant forces, Citizenship Excess illustrates the limitations of liberalism as expressed through U.S. media channels. Inspired by Latin American critical scholarship on the “coloniality of power,” Amaya demonstrates that nativists use the privileges associated with citizenship to accumulate power. That power is deployed to aggressively shape politics, culture, and the law, effectively undermining Latino/as who are marked by the ethno-racial and linguistic difference that nativists love to hate.
