Summary
Providing an insider's view of US immigration enforcement and detention "US Immigration Reform and Its Global Impact" unravels the post-9/11 national security agenda that led to the devastating Postville Raid of 2008 and its global ramifications. This incisive historical analysis unveils the hidden ideologies within immigration policy--uncovering forms of labor, demographic, and electoral control. Rich eyewitness accounts and voices from across the political spectrum paint a vivid picture of labor migration in the era of globalization. Camayd-Freixas employs theories of human mobility in terms of migration spheres to convey practical and historical lessons, illuminating a much-needed roadmap for enlightened immigration reform
