Description:

Immigration Nationprovides a critical analysis of the impact that U.S. immigration policy has on human rights. In the wake of 9/11, the Department of Homeland Security was founded to protect America from the threat of terrorist attacks. However, along with dramatic increases in immigration law enforcement — raids, detentions, and deportations have increased six-fold in the past decade — American citizens, families, and communities have ultimately borne the cost. Although family reunification is officially a core component of U.S. immigration policy, these same policies often tear families apart. Pundits and politicians nearly always frame this debate in terms of security and economic needs, but here, Tanya Maria Golash-Boza addresses the debate with the human rights of migrants and their families at the center of her analyses.Hear more from Golash-Boza"Human Rights or Civil Rights for Immigrants?"American Constitution Society for Law and Policy Book TalkApril 12, 2012
