Auteur: Bacon, David
Titel: Illegal people
Sub titel: How globalization creates migration and criminalizes immigrants
In `Illegal People' Bacon explores the human side of globalization, exposing the many ways it uproots people in Latin America and Asia, driving them to migrate. At the same time, U.S. immigration policy makes the labor of those displaced people a crime in the United States. `Illegal People' explains why our national policy produces even more displacement, more migration, more immigration raids, and a more divided, polarized society. Bacon traces the development of illegal status back to slavery and shows the human cost of treating the indispensable labor of millions of migrants - and the migrants themselves - as illegal. `Illegal People' argues for a sea change in the way we think, debate, and legislate around issues of migration and globalization, making a compelling case for why we need to consider immigration and migration from a globalized human rights perspective.
