A provocative, strategic plan for a humane immigration system from the nation’s leading immigration scholars and activists
During the past decade, right-wing nativists have stoked popular hostility to the nation’s foreign-born population, forcing the immigrant rights movement into a defensive posture. In the Trump years, preoccupied with each crisis upon crisis, advocates had few opportunities to consider questions of long-term policy or future strategy. Now is the time for a reset.
Immigration Matters offers a new, actionable vision for immigration policy. It brings together key movement leaders and academics in the immigration space to share cutting-edge approaches to the question of America’s borders—who should be allowed in, and who, if anyone, should be kept out. The book delves into topics including new ways to frame immigration issues, fresh thinking on key aspects of policy, challenges of integration, workers’ rights, family re-unification, legalization, paths to citizenship, and humane enforcement.
The perfect handbook for immigration activists, scholars, policy makers, and anyone who cares about one of the most contentious issues of our age, Immigration Matters makes accessible an immigration policy that both remediates the harm done to immigrant workers and communities under Trump and advances a bold new vision for the future.
