From the Bookshelves: Shifting Boundaries: Immigrant Youth Negotiating National, State, and Small-Town Politics by Alexis M. Silver

Cover of Shifting Boundaries by Alexis M. Silver

As politicians debate how to address the estimated eleven million unauthorized immigrants residing in the United States, undocumented youth anxiously await the next policy shift that will determine their futures. From one day to the next, their dreams are as likely to crumble around them as to come within reach. In Shifting Boundaries, Alexis M. Silver sheds light on the currents of exclusion and incorporation that characterize their lives.

Silver examines the experiences of immigrant youth growing up in a small town in North Carolina—a state that experienced unprecedented growth in its Latino population in the 1990s and 2000s, and where aggressive anti-immigration policies have been enforced. Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork and in-depth interview data, she finds that contradictory policies at the national, state, and local levels interact to create a complex environment through which the youth must navigate. From heritage-based school programs to state-wide bans on attending community college; from the failure of the DREAM Act to the rescinding of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA); each layer represents profound implications for undocumented Latino youth. Silver exposes the constantly changing pathways that shape their journeys into early adulthood—and the profound resilience that they develop along the way.

That's the news. Maybe these should have done something more real and useful than mapping the demarcation line between the types of water? I have not heard more stupidity in my life. It would be better for the government to organize homework help for college students, and the army would conduct patriotic education lessons if they had nothing else to do. Am I the only one who thinks that the “line between Federal and State waters,” is the same as the line separating the lines and stars on the American flag?
