Editorial Reviews


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

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, University of Southern California and author of God's Heart Has No Borders: How Religious Activists are Working for Immigrant Rights

This book is a must read. It humanizes what has been a very contenious debate in this country. We love to have immagrants come to do our low paying, dirty jobs but then we demonize them when it is politically convenient. In story after story Dr Boza shows how the vast majority are just trying to make a better life for their families, a goal we all strive for. They pay taxes and receive few benefits for fear of deportation. They are labeled law breakers but are denied even the basic rights of real criminals. Please read this book before you make snap judgements about our undocumented citizens.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book. It shows how immigrants who have contributed so much to the building of this country are being denied basic human rights. It also describes how private prison companies are lobbying state legislatures for the arrest of undocumented immigrants so that they can fill their prisons (called detention centers in the lingo of ICE) and increase their profits. The book makes a very persuasive case for why the United States immigration policies have to be changed.
