New from the Woodrow Wilson Center's Mexico Institute

Borders, Jails, and Jobsites: An Overview of Federal Immigration Enforcement Programs in the U.S.

Description Report examines such policies as the Secure Communities program, 287 (g) agreements between federal agencies and local police, and Operation Community Shield. Signaling concerns on certain enforcement practices and suggesting policy options, the paper was prepared for the Mexico Institute by Aarti Kohli and Deepa Varma of the Chief Justice Earl Warren Institute on Race, Ethnicity & Diversity of the University of California, Berkeley Law School. A draft of the paper was presented as part of the conference, Migration, Repatriation, and Protection: Policies and Options, held at the Wilson Center in November 2010 and part of the research initiative, U.S.-Mexico Migration Dialogue, funded with support from The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.

Understanding Mexico’s Changing Immigration Laws by Laura V. González-Murphy and former Woodrow Wilson Center fellow Rey Koslowski (2003-’04), both of the University of Albany, takes a look at federal immigration reform in Mexico, where a bill is currently being debated in Congress. The paper argues that a strong impetus driving reform has been the desire to neutralize the criticism of anti-Mexico and anti-migrant lobbies in the United States. By enhancing protections for transit migrants, decriminalizing unauthorized migration, and better punishing exploitation, reform backers in Mexico may indirectly help to remove an impediment to comprehensive immigration reform north of the border. The paper also makes a scholarly analysis of Mexico’s existing immigration code, the General Population Law, passed in 1974. The Spanish version of the paper, Entendiendo el cambio a las leyes de inmigración de México, is located here.

By Laura V. González-Murphy and Rey Koslowski

In Spanish, Proceso de repatriación. Experiencias de las personas devueltas a México por las autoridades estadounidenses by María Dolores Paris-Pombo of El Colegio de la Frontera Norte analyzes repatriation trends at the southwest border this decade. Data used in the paper show that the volume of repatriations has decreased by about half since touching a peak of nearly 1.2 million in 2000. Additionally, the data also show a qualitative change in the kind of individuals being repatriated. Increasingly, Paris-Pombo notes, long-term residents are figuring more prominently in the repatriation totals. Even if the numbers of repatriated individuals are slowing, current policies are still putting heavy stresses on Mexican border communities, which are forced to absorb repatriates even without the resources to accommodate them.

Crossing Borders: Migration and Citizenship in the Twentieth-Century United States
By Dorothee Schneider

Harvard University Press, 336 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0674047567, $35.96

Book Description: Aspiring immigrants to the United States make many separate border crossings in their quest to become Americans—in their home towns, ports of departure, U.S. border stations, and in American neighborhoods, courthouses, and schools. In a book of remarkable breadth, Dorothee Schneider covers both the immigrants’ experience of their passage from an old society to a new one and American policymakers’ debates over admission to the United States and citizenship. Bringing together the separate histories of Irish, English, German, Italian, Jewish, Chinese, Japanese, and Mexican immigrants, the book opens up a fresh view of immigrant aspirations and government responses.

Ingenuity and courage emerge repeatedly from these stories, as immigrants adapted their particular resources, especially social networks, to make migration and citizenship successful on their own terms. While officials argued over immigrants’ fitness for admission and citizenship, immigrant communities forced the government to alter the meaning of race, class, and gender as criteria for admission. Women in particular made a long transition from dependence on men to shapers of their own destinies.

Schneider aims to relate the immigrant experience as a totality across many borders. By including immigrant voices as well as U.S. policies and laws, she provides a truly transnational history that offers valuable perspectives on current debates over immigration.


The U.S. Coast Guard's War on Human Smuggling
By Dennis L. Noble

University Press of Florida, 320 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0813036062, $20.33

Book Description: Of all the hot-button issues facing the United States in the early twenty-first century, perhaps none is presently generating more passion than illegal immigration. But what the vociferous public debates and sound bites often miss is that the story is far larger than the land border with Mexico.

The U.S. Coast Guard has been charged with preventing undocumented migrants from entering the country for its entire existence. Best known, perhaps, for rescuing lives and preventing the smuggling of goods, the USCG is the only branch of the armed forces actually charged with law enforcement.

Dennis Noble highlights the policies, strategy, and tactics used by the U.S. Coast Guard in enforcing immigration laws. But throughout, the focus remains on the human stories--both those of the small group of men and women charged with carrying out a difficult mission as well as those of the desperate men and women willing to risk their lives for a chance to escape crushing poverty or persecution.

In many cases, the service’s interdiction responsibilities go hand in glove with rescue operations. As Rear Admiral Arthur E. Brooks puts it, "You can’t do migrant operations without having your heart broken."


Migration in the Global Political Economy
By Nicola Phillips

Lynne Rienner Pub., 290 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 1588267628, $65.00

Book Description: How does the evolution of global capitalism shape patterns and processes of migration? How does migration in turn shape and intersect with the forces at work in the global economy? How should we understand the relationship between migration and development, and how is migration connected with patterns of poverty and inequality? How are processes of migration and immigration governed in different parts of the world? The authors of Migration in the Global Political Economy tackle these questions in a set of engaging and authoritative chapters.

Mobilizing the core insights of critical IPE scholarship and combining analysis of the big picture with attention to particular regions, countries, and actors, the authors seek to bring the increasingly important processes of migration to the center of inquiries into globalization and its social underpinnings.


Social Capital, Political Participation and Migration in Europe: Making Multicultural Democracy Work?
By Laura Morales and Marco Giugni

Palgrave Macmillan, pp. 288

Hardcover, ISBN: 0230244165, $68.07

Book Description: How can European societies more effectively promote the active engagement of immigrants and their children in the political and civic life of the countries where they live? This book examines the effect of migrants' individual attributes and resources, their social capital and the political opportunities on their political integration.


The Reaper's Line: Life and Death on the Mexican Border
By Lee Morgan II

Rio Nuevo Publishers, 524 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 188789697X, $17.76

Paperback, ISBN: 1933855576, $14.21, pp. 528

Book Description: A true story of violence, drugs, human smuggling, and dirty politicians. “I’ve fallen under the spell of a fabulously infatuating mistress,” writes Lee Morgan II in this searing memoir. “She” is Arizona’s beautiful, dangerous borderland, and this is the shocking true story of Morgan’s many years of combat there. A young Marine taught Morgan, aged 14, how to shoot a rifle. Then, he says, “my pseudo ‘big brother’ went on to infamously enter history books as the ‘Texas Tower Sniper.’” Haunted by the Grim Reaper, today’s Wild West is near anarchy. “To know the Mexican people is to love them,” writes Morgan, but he hates with righteous rage the crime and corruption he’s witnessed on both sides of the border. Discover why Morgan has been called the Serpico of the desert. Climb down with him into a “narco-tunnel” built by slave labor to smuggle drugs. Consider the huge social and political questions raised by Morgan’s passionate exposé. “I’ve been personally shot, shrapneled, slashed,
clubbed, burned, and nearly dragged to death,” says the veteran lawman, who now lives with a Mexican bounty on his head. “It’s been a hell of a ride.” And it’s a hell of a story.


Undocumented Workers' Transitions: Legal Status, Migration, and Work in Europe
By Sonia McKay, Eugenia Markova, and Anna Paraskevopoulou

Routledge, 202 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0415889022, $110.56

Book Description: This book explores how immigration laws, while aimed at discouraging undocumented migration, actually sustain it. It documents the circumstances that have caused previously documented migrants to become undocumented and explores the impact of their changing status on their families and on their own employment opportunities. The authors argue that undocumented migrants are forced into the most precarious types of work, and changes in the way that employment is organised, with a shift into temporary, agency and sub-contracted work, makes undocumented migrants particularly attractive in some employment markets. This groundbreaking volume draws substantially on data collected from a two-year research study in seven European countries that was focused on understanding the impact of migration flows on EU labour markets.


Mexican Americans Across Generations: Immigrant Families, Racial Realities
By Jessica Vasquez

NYU Press, 304 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0814788289, $79.00

Paperback, ISBN: 0814788297, $24.00

Book Description: While newly arrived immigrants are often the focus of public concern and debate, many Mexican immigrants and Mexican Americans have resided in the United States for generations. Latinos are the largest and fastest-growing ethnic group in the United States, and their racial identities change with each generation. While the attainment of education and middle class occupations signals a decline in cultural attachment for some, socioeconomic mobility is not a cultural death-knell, as others are highly ethnically identified. There are a variety of ways that middle class Mexican Americans relate to their ethnic heritage, and racialization despite assimilation among a segment of the second and third generations reveals the continuing role of race even among the U.S.-born.

Mexican Americans Across Generations investigates racial identity and assimilation in three-generation Mexican American families living in California. Through rich interviews with three generations of middle class Mexican American families, Vasquez focuses on the family as a key site for racial and gender identity formation, knowledge transmission, and incorporation processes, exploring how the racial identities of Mexican Americans both change and persist generationally in families. She illustrates how gender, physical appearance, parental teaching, historical era and discrimination influence Mexican Americans' racial identity and incorporation patterns, ultimately arguing that neither racial identity nor assimilation are straightforward progressions but, instead, develop unevenly and are influenced by family, society, and historical social movements.


Everyday Ruptures: Children, Youth, and Migration in Global Perspective
Edited by Cati Coe, Rachel R. Reynolds, Deborah A. Boehm, Julia Meredith Hess, and Heather Rae-Espinoza

Vanderbilt University Press, 240 pp.

Paperback, ISBN: 082651748X, $27.95

Book Description: When people -- whether children, youth, and adults -- migrate, that migration is often perceived as a rupture, with people separated by great distances and for extended periods of time. But for migrants and those affected by migration, the everyday persists, and migration itself may be critical to the continuation of social life. Everyday Ruptures illuminates the wide-ranging continuities and disruptions in the experiences of children around the world, those who participate in and those who are affected by migration.


The Next Generation: Immigrant Youth in a Comparative Perspective
By Mary Waters; edited by Richard Alba

NYU Press, 352 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0814707424, $75.00

Paperback, ISBN: 9780814707432, $25.00

Kindle, ASIN: B004NYAS6K, File Size: 4318 KB, $9.99

Book Description: One fifth of the population of the United States belongs to the immigrant or second generations. While the US is generally thought of as the immigrant society par excellence, it now has a number of rivals in Europe. The Next Generation brings together studies from top immigration scholars to explore how the integration of immigrants affects the generations that come after. The original essays explore the early beginnings of the second generation in the United States and Western Europe, exploring the overall patterns of success of the second generation.

While there are many striking similarities in the situations of the children of labor immigrants coming from outside the highly developed worlds of Europe and North America, wherever one looks, subtle features of national and local contexts interact with characteristics of the immigrant groups themselves to create variations in second-generation trajectories. The contributors show that these issues are of the utmost importance for the future, for they will determine the degree to which contemporary immigration will produce either durable ethno-racial cleavages or mainstream integration.
