Immigration and American Democracy: Subverting the Rule of Law
By Robert Koulish

Routledge, 240 pages

Hardcover, ISBN: 0415996171, $119.00
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0415996171/centerforimmigra

Paperback, ISBN: 041599618X, $26.95
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/041599618X/centerforimmigra

Book Description: While the idea of immigration embodies America’s rhetorical commitment to democracy, recent immigration control policies also showcase abysmal failures in democratic practice. Immigration and American Democracy examines these failures in terms of state sovereignty, neoliberalism, and surveillance-based techniques of social control.

The ideological argument for privatization is not new. But immigration has provided a laboratory for replicating on American soil the sorts of outsourcing travesties that have occurred in America’s war in Iraq. As an outcome, abusive executive powers—many delegated to state and local governments and private actors—are manifested every day in data collection, spying, detention, and deportation hearings, and in many cases bypassing the Constitution. The practice of privatization extends this leviathan immigration state by clamping down on civil liberties without having to oblige the courts.

Ultimately, Koulish examines the contested terrain between democratic and undemocratic forces in the immigration policy domain and concludes with recommendations for how democratic forces might well still win out.

Immigration Worldwide: Policies, Practices, and Trends
Edited by Uma A. Segal, Doreen Elliott, and Nazneen S. Mayadas

Oxford University Press, USA, 496 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0195388135, $68.00
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0195388135/centerforimmigra

Book Description: The ease of transportation, the opening of international immigration policies, the growing refugee movements, and the increasing size of unauthorized immigrant populations suggest that immigration worldwide is a phenomenon of utmost importance to professionals who develop policies and programs for, or provide services to, immigrants. Immigration occurs in both the wealthy nations of the global North and the poorer countries of the global South; it involves individuals who arrive with substantial human capital and those with little. It has far-reaching implications for a nation's economy, public policies, social and health services, and culture.

The purpose of this volume, therefore, is to explore current patterns and policies of immigration in key countries and regions across the globe and analyze the implications for these countries and their immigrant populations. Each of its chapters, written by an international and interdisciplinary group of experts, explores how country conditions, policies, values, politics, and attitudes influence the process of immigration and subsequently affect immigrants, migration, and the nation itself.

No other volume explores the landscape of worldwide immigration as broadly as this does, with sweeping coverage of countries and empirical research, together with an analytic framework that sets the context of human migration against a wide backdrop of experiential factors that take shape long before an immigrant enters a host country. At once a sourcebook and an applied model of immigration studies, Immigration Worldwide is a valuable reference for scholars and students seeking a wide-ranging yet nuanced survey of the key issues salient to debates about the programs and policies that best serve immigrant populations and their host countries.

From Another Place: Migration and the Politics of Culture
By Gillian Bottomley

Cambridge University Press, 191 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0521410142, $68.00
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0521410142/centerforimmigra

Paperback, ISBN: 052112574X, $27.99, 192 pp.
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/052112574X/centerforimmigra

Book Description: Never before have so many people ended up in a place different from where they began, something which made the twentieth century a century of migration. Culture is central to the process of migration, yet it is rarely examined in studies of the political economy of labour migration. Originally published in 1992, From Another Place explores definitions and understandings of the relations between migration and cultural processes, calling into question the interrelation between circumstance and cultural practice. It is an insightful attempt to move away from the limitations of dichotomous explanations of migration, using the findings of sociology, political economy and literature in the discussion of cultural beliefs and practices. The book is a fascinating, empirically grounded study, useful in its discussion of the dynamics of gender and class as well as those of ethnicity and culture.

Book Description: These essays show President Harry S. Truman made considerable contributions as an "immigration president," though he generally has not been given credit for immigration policy. Truman pioneered refugee admissions, was the first president to propose eliminating all racial/ethnic bars in immigration, and his commission on immigration set out reforms which became central to the epochal Immigration Act of 1965.

From Every End of This Earth: 13 Families and the New Lives They Made in America
By Steven V. Roberts

Harper, 352 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0061245615, $17.15
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0061245615/centerforimmigra

Paperback, ISBN: 0061245623 , $14.99
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0061245623 /centerforimmigra

Book Description: America is a nation of immigrants. But what does it mean to be an immigrant in the United States today? In some ways, the experience has never changed—all newcomers feel the pain of separation. In other ways, it has changed drastically—families maintain strong business ties to their home countries and speak daily with their relatives on cell phones.

Attitudes about the great melting pot have taken a sharp turn toward insularity in recent years. The 9/11 attacks and recent waves of undocumented workers seem to have eroded America's long-standing belief in the value of immigration. Yet the families in this book conclusively demonstrate that critics are wrong, and that in the age of Barack Obama, the son of an immigrant from Kenya, newcomers "from every end of this earth" continue to renew America's greatness, every day, with their courage and character.

Having shared his own family's story in My Fathers' Houses, distinguished journalist Steven V. Roberts now profiles immigrants from China and Afghanistan, Mexico and Sierra Leone, who have journeyed to our shores in pursuit of the same dream that propelled his own grandparents to leave Russia and Poland a century ago. He combines compelling interviews and meticulous research to produce an engaging, wonderfully clear, and accessible narrative that explores each family's original yet deeply resonant story.

As the political debate rages on, Roberts offers an essential and timely look at today's immigrant accounts, and sheds light on the enormous contributions these individuals continue to make to the fabric and future of America.

Transnational Ties: Cities, Migrations, and Identities
Edited by Michael Smith and John Eade

Transaction Publishers, 175 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 1412808065, $29.95
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1412808065/centerforimmigra

Book Description: Cities are key sites of the transnational ties that increasingly connect people, places, and projects across the globe. They provide opportunities and constraints within which transnational actors and networks operate and nodes linking wider social formations traverse national borders. This book brings together a series of richly textured ethnographic studies that suggest new ways to situate and historicize transnationalism, identify new pathways to transnational urbanism, and map the contours of translocal, interregional, and diasporic connections not previously studied. The transnational ties treated in this book truly span the globe, giving concrete meaning to the phrase "globalization from below."How have the contributors to this book conceptualized the wider context informing the conduct of their ethnographically grounded, multi-sited research on the relationship between cities, migration, and transnationalism? Several interrelated contextual dimensions have been singled out as affecting the opportunities and constraints experienced by transnational migrant subjects. Socio-spatially, in several of these chapters, the political economic context now called neoliberal globalization is shown to be a key driving force creating conditions that necessitate, facilitate, or impede migration, foster trans-local economic ties, and create new inter-regional interdependencies - e.g., new South-South and East-East transnational ties.The changing historical context of both migrating groups and the cities and regions they move across are central to the study of the interplay of urban change and migrant transnationalism. The historical particularities of migrant recruitment, migration histories, migratory narratives, and changing gender and class relations all affect the character and geography of transnational migration with an impact on the social structures of community formation. This is a pioneering effort in the "Comparative Urban and Community Research" series.

Working in the Shadows: A Year of Doing the Jobs (Most) Americans Won't Do
By Gabriel Thompson

Nation Books, 320 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 15685840831, $16.47
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1568584083/centerforimmigra

Book Description: What is it like to do the back-breaking work of immigrants? To find out, Gabriel Thompson spent a year working alongside Latino immigrants, who initially thought he was either crazy or an undercover immigration agent. He stooped over lettuce fields in Arizona, and worked the graveyard shift at a chicken slaughterhouse in rural Alabama. He dodged taxis—not always successfully—as a bicycle delivery “boy” for an upscale Manhattan restaurant, and was fired from a flower shop by a boss who, he quickly realized, was nuts.

As one coworker explained, “These jobs make you old quick.” Back spasms occasionally keep Thompson in bed, where he suffers recurring nightmares involving iceberg lettuce and chicken carcasses. Combining personal narrative with investigative reporting, Thompson shines a bright light on the underside of the American economy, exposing harsh working conditions, union busting, and lax government enforcement—while telling the stories of workers, undocumented immigrants, and desperate US citizens alike, forced to live with chronic pain in the pursuit of $8 an hour.

Immigrants and the Cultural Politics of Place: A Comparative Study of New York and Los Angeles
By Kevin Keogan

LFB Scholarly Publishing LLC, 204 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 1593322321, $62.00
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1593322321/centerforimmigra

Book Description: Keogan looks at the development of social boundaries in relation to American immigration since 1965. Since 1965 racial and ethnic distinctions have lost legitimacy and new cultural categories emerged. Illegal immigrants have become the most excludable segment of the foreign-born population. By the mid-1990s, the two principal urban destinations for immigrants to the U.S., New York City and Los Angeles, had developed divergent cultural orientations toward illegal immigrants. An analysis of mass media and scholarly texts demonstrates how symbolic boundaries were negotiated differently in these two settings. Keogan offers a comparative-historical analysis of the demographic and cultural factors involved in the development of these divergent political contexts.

Emigrating from China to the United States: A Comparison of Different Social Experiences

Charles C Thomas Pub Ltd., 235 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0398078998, $52.95
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/03980789985/centerforimmigra

Paperback, ISBN: 0398079005, $34.95
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0398079005/centerforimmigra

Book Description: Sharing her experiences of living in both China and the United States, the author describes how life events have influenced and impacted her social values, attitudes, behaviors, and further discusses how she continues to be resocialized by both American and Chinese societies. She focuses on the connection of those experiences to helping students see a world beyond the borders of the United States. The text presents sociological concepts and theories and lays a foundation on the subject of globalization and offers a comprehensive perspective by which to view other societies. Major topics presented include research methods, including data collection and setting up research projects; a comparison of Chinese and American cultures; new immigrant resocialization; social interactions from society to society; the relative and universal nature of deviance; comparison and evaluation of U.S. and Chinese social stratification; racial group issues; comparison of U.S. and Chinese sex and gender behaviors; different approaches to the importance of family in cultures; the influence of Confucius versus Christianity; population issues, including family planning and abortion; and urbanization and its effect on social change. The book is especially important in the study of history of immigration, world cultures, current American immigration, and the socialization and assimilation by the dominant culture in a society. It serves as an excellent supplementary text for the general study of sociology and social sciences at all levels.

A Moveable Empire: Ottoman Nomads, Migrants, and Refugees
By Resat Kasaba

University of Washington Press, 216 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0295989475, $70.00
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0295989475/centerforimmigra

Paperback, ISBN: 0295989483, $30.00
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0295989483/centerforimmigra

Book Description: A Moveable Empire examines the history of the Ottoman Empire through a new lens, focusing on the migrant groups that lived within its bounds and their changing relationship to the state's central authorities. Unlike earlier studies that take an evolutionary view of tribe-state relations - casting the development of a state as a story in which nomadic tribes give way to settled populations - this book argues that mobile groups played an important role in shaping Ottoman institutions and, ultimately, the early republican structures of modern Turkey.

Over much of the empire's long history, local interests influenced the development of the Ottoman state as authorities sought to enlist and accommodate the various nomadic groups in the region. In the early years of the empire, maintaining a nomadic presence, especially in frontier regions, was an important source of strength. Cooperation between the imperial center and tribal leaders provided the center with an effective way of reaching distant parts of the empire, while allowing tribal leaders to perpetuate their own authority and guarantee the tribes' survival as bearers of distinct cultures and identities. This relationship changed in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, as indigenous communities discovered new possibilities for expanding their own economic and political power by pursuing local, regional, and even global opportunities, independent of the Ottoman center.

The loose, flexible relationship between the Ottoman center and migrant communities became a liability under these changing conditions, and the Ottoman state took its first steps toward settling tribes and controlling migrations. Finally, in the early twentieth century, mobility took another form entirely as ethnicity-based notions of nationality led to forced migrations.

Resat Kasaba's new take on Ottoman history will appeal not only to students and scholars of the region but also to those with a more general interest in empires, migration, and state-society relations.

THE AMERICAS

Prospects for Immigration Reform
DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano on November 13, 2009 announced that the Obama administration supported a three-legged comprehensive immigration, including tougher enforcement to deter illegal migration, a "tough and fair pathway to earned legal status" for most of the 12 million unauthorized foreigners in the US, and a streamlined legal immigration system with more guest worker visas. (www.americanprogress.org/events/2009/11/Napolitano.html)

DHS: Real ID, Border, Interior
The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has a $43 billion budget for FY10. DHS's Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) received $5.4 billion, including $139 million for worksite enforcement investigations. E-Verify was extended for three years, and DHS now allows US employers who participate in the E-Verify system to place a logo "I E-Verify" on their products or services.

Health, Unemployment, Census
Health Insurance. The US spends $2.6 trillion a year on health care; private sector employers paid an average $3.50 an hour for their employees' health insurance in 2009. Despite spending more per person than any other country, a sixth of US residents, 46 million, did not have health insurance sometime in 2008, and US health outcomes are no better than in industrial countries that spend far less.

H-1B, S&E
The H-1B program provides US employers with easy access to foreign workers who have at least a BS degree or equivalent experience and who will be employed in a US job requiring a BS degree. To limit the effects of this easy access on similar US workers, a cap of 65,000 H-1B visas a year was imposed by the Immigration Act of 1990.

Canada: Migrant Workers
On December 1, 2008, there were 251,235 temporary foreign workers in Canada, almost double the number in 2003; 192,519 foreigners with temporary work permits arrived in 2008, including 66,600 to Ontario.

Mexico: Migrants, Remittances
An August-September 2009 poll of 1,000 Mexicans in Mexico conducted for the Center for Immigration Studies found most respondents agreeing that illegal migration to the US would increase if the US government announced a legalization program. Two-thirds of those polled knew someone living in the United States; a third had an immediate household member living in the United States. As with a similar Pew poll, over a third of Mexicans said they would move to the US if they could.

THE AMERICAS

Obama, E-Verify, Future Flows
Meeting with the Mexican and Canadian presidents in Guadalajara, Mexico on August 10, 2009, President Obama said that comprehensive immigration reform would have to wait until 2010 to allow Congress to deal with health care, energy and financial regulation. Obama said that the US "can create a system in which you have strong border security, we have an orderly process for people to come in, but we're also giving an opportunity for those who are already in the United States to be able to achieve a pathway to citizenship so that they don't have to live in the shadows, and their children and their grandchildren can have a full participation in the United States."

DHS: Border, Interior, Services
The number of unauthorized foreigners in the US fell from 12.5 million in summer 2007 to 10.8 million in early 2009, according to an analysis of Current Population Survey data by the Center for Immigration Studies. The Pew Hispanic Center estimated that the number of unauthorized fell from 12.4 million in 2007 to 11.9 million in 2008, while DHS estimated that the number fell from 11.8 million in 2007 to 11.6 million in 2008.

Unemployment, H-1B
The federal minimum wage rose from $6.55 to $7.25 an hour on July 24, 2009. About 2.2 million workers were paid the federal minimum wage in 2008; many more are paid up to $1 an hour more than the minimum. The most populous states, except for Florida and Texas, have minimum wages higher than $7.25; Washington has the highest state minimum wage, $8.55 in 2009.

Health Care: Unauthorized
The US spends over $2 trillion a year on health care, but 46 million US residents lack coverage during a typical year. High and rising costs and lack of coverage are the major motivations for health care reform proposals that would shift doctors' payments away from the number of procedures performed and require insurers to cover all applicants. There is disagreement over whether to offer a public health care plan and whether to require employers to provide health insurance to their employees or pay a tax, the play-or-pay mandate.

Mexico: Migrants, Remittances, 3x1
Almost 12 million Mexican-born residents live in the US, including some seven million who are unauthorized. Mexico has 110 million residents in 2009, suggesting that 10 percent of the 122 million people born in Mexico have moved to the US.

Canada: Migrants, Visas, Asylum
Canada issued 192,519 visas to temporary foreign workers in 2008, up from 113,000 in 2004. Newly arrived migrants included 25,063 farm workers, up from 7,188 in 1980, and 12,864 nannies and home-care workers, up from 2,614 in 1980.

Latin America
CARICOM. CARICOM is a 15-member organization of Caribbean states that promotes free trade and migration. There are significant wage gaps between member nations, which has prompted richer islands to limit freedom of movement and raised complaints from governments who say their nationals are "targeted" in richer member countries.

IMMIGRATION

AgJOBS, Immigration Reform
AgJOBS. US farmers (www.saveusfarms.org) and farm worker advocates (www.fwjustice.org) remained committed to enactment of Agricultural Job Opportunities, Benefits and Security Act (AgJOBS), which was re-introduced in the House and Senate in May 2009. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has replaced ex-Senator Larry Craig (R-ID) as the chief proponent of AgJOBS in the Senate.
http://migration.ucdavis.edu/rmn/more.php?id=1508_0_4_0

H-2A Regs, Cases
The Department of Labor on November 17, 2009 published an interim rule for employers seeking farm workers before June 1, 2010. In January 2009, the Bush DOL issued rules changing the H-2A program to an attestation system as outlined in AgJOBS; one goal of this streamlining was to increase the employment of H-2A workers and decrease the employment of unauthorized foreigners.

DHS Enforcement
The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has a $43 billion budget for FY10. DHS's Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) received $5.4 billion, including $139 million for worksite enforcement investigations. E-Verify was extended for three years, and DHS now allows US employers who participate in the E-Verify system to place a logo "I E-Verify" on their products or services.

Canada: Ontario, Maple Leaf
In Canada, labor law is provincial rather than federal. All provinces except Alberta and Ontario cover farm workers under provincial labor relations laws, giving farm workers the right to form or join unions and requiring farm employers to bargain with certified unions. Ontario's Labor Relations Act of 1943, modeled on the US National Labor Relations Act of 1935, excluded farm workers, as did the NLRA.

OSCE: Trafficking in Ag
The Vienna, Austria-based Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, which has 56-member states, held a meeting in April 2009 that dealt with the trafficking of persons to work in agriculture. The discussion drew on US experience; the Coalition of Immokalee Workers apparently asserted that "workers being held against their will?[are] a significant percentage of the overall farm workforce." (p2). No evidence is offered to support this statement; some 2.5 million workers are employed for wages on US farms sometime during a typical year.

IMMIGRATION

H-2A Re-revised, AgJOBS
The effort to re-engineer the H-2A program continued on September 4, 2009, when the US Department of Labor (DOL) announced revised regulations that undid some of the revisions effective on January 17, 2009.
http://migration.ucdavis.edu/rmn/more.php?id=1485_0_4_0

H-2A, H-2B Cases, RICO
There were several cases filed against farm employers and contractors who employed H-2A workers in summer-fall 2009; most involved the admission of Thai workers. There were also cases filed against employers of H-2B workers.
http://migration.ucdavis.edu/rmn/more.php?id=1486_0_4_0

Unauthorized: Border, Interior
The number of unauthorized foreigners in the US fell from 12.5 million in summer 2007 to 10.8 million in early 2009, according to an analysis of Current Population Survey data by the Center for Immigration Studies. The Pew Hispanic Center estimated that the number of unauthorized fell from 12.4 million in 2007 to 11.9 million in 2008, while DHS estimated that the number fell from 11.8 million in 2007 to 11.6 million in 2008.
http://migration.ucdavis.edu/rmn/more.php?id=1487_0_4_0

Canada: Unions and Migrants
Farm workers are generally excluded from provincial labor relations laws in Canada, but this exclusion may disappear as unions argue in court that excluding migrants violates an implied right in Section 2(d) of Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms to organize and bargain collectively. A case scheduled to be heard by the Supreme Court of Canada in December 2009 may clarify whether provinces may exclude farm workers from union organizing and collective bargaining laws.

Australia, UK: Migrants
Australia. Newspaper reports highlighted the use of contractors to act as risk absorbers in fruit-picking in October 2009. Interviews with workers find that many claim to be dependents of foreign students or working holiday makers. Most earn A$13 an hour, but have to pay up to A$80 a week for lodging and often rides to work.

Mexico: Migration Pressure
Almost 12 million Mexican-born residents live in the US, including some seven million who are unauthorized. Mexico has 110 million residents in 2009, suggesting that 10 percent of the 122 million people born in Mexico have moved to the US.
