From the Bookshelves: Race, Criminal Justice, Migration Control edited by Mary Bosworth, Alpa Parmar, and Yolanda Vazquez
A formidable team of crimmigration scholars will be discussing the book, Race, Criminal Justice, Migration Control (Oxford Press 2018) at an Author's Meet Reader session at the LSA Annual Meeting in DC on Friday May 31 11:50 AM - 12:35 PM in Hyatt Thornton A.
Book Summary: Race and the meaning of race in relation to citizenship and belonging is excavated through the chapters in this book, helping us to transform the way we think about migration. By placing race at the center of its analysis, this book examines, questions, and explains the growing intersection between criminal justice and migration control. Through the lens of race, we see how criminal justice and migration enmesh in order to exclude, stop, and excise racialized citizens and non-citizens from societies across the world within, beyond, and along borders.

From the Bookshelves: Immigration and Democracy by Sarah Song
Another AMR will be held for Sarah Song's book Immigration and Democracy (Oxford Press 2018) at LSA on Sat June 1 at 11:50 AM - 12:35 PM in Hyatt Capitol A.
Her book was previously featured on ImmigrationProf Blog. Here is the book summary: The book explores the politically contentious terrain of immigration and borders. What does justice in immigration require? Song argues against restrictionism and open borders and develops a moral theory of immigration that takes seriously both the claims of political community and the claims of migrants. Song considers the implications of her moderate cosmopolitan theory for immigration law and policy, including refugee policy, family-based immigration, temporary worker programs, and unauthorized migration.
