    Undocumented migrants in the United States raise compelling questions about political legitimacy, obligation, and citizenship.

  • Asylum - A Right Deniedby Helen O'Nions

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    In recent decades, asylum has emerged as a highly politicized European issue.

  • The New Deportations Deliriumby Daniel Kanstroom; M. Brinton Lykes

    NYU Press 2015; US$ 39.00

    Since 1996, when the deportation laws were hardened, millions of migrants to the U.S., including many long-term legal permanent residents with ?green cards,? have experienced summary arrest, incarceration without bail, transfer to remote detention facilities, and deportation without counsel?a life-time banishment from what is, in many cases, the only... more...

  • Sanctuary Cityby Jennifer J. Bagelman

    Palgrave Macmillan 2015; US$ 45.00
