What People are Saying About This

Forced Out and Fenced In: Immigration Tales from the Field - Tanya Maria Golash-Boza

Deported Americans provides a compelling, clear, and humanistic analysis of the widespread consequences of U.S. policies of mass deportations. Drawing on extensive research, and writing evocatively and personably about the lives of deportees, Beth C. Caldwell deftly combines astute legal analysis with rich stories of deportees and their family members.”

Immigration Law and Social Justice - Jennifer M. Chacón

“In this beautifully written book, Beth C. Caldwell presents the story of ‘deported Americans’—noncitizens with strong ties to the United States who view themselves as Americans. She sheds much-needed light on how deportees experience and attempt to cope with their removal from the United States. In so doing, Caldwell not only provides a picture of the difficult and sometimes heartbreaking experiences of our deported diaspora but also presents a useful roadmap for policy reform.”
