Tanya Golash-Boza - Deported: Policing Immigrants, Disposable Labor and Global Capitalism

Saturday, November 21, 2015 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Since 1997, the U.S. has deported five million people—double the number prior to 1996. The statistics speak for themselves—almost. The individuals behind these numbers have real lives and real stories, and in her fifth book, Golash-Boza, University of California, Merced, associate professor of sociology, author of Immigration Nation and a contributor to media outlets including Al Jazeera and The Nation, presents details of nearly 150 deportees, the vast majority of them Latin American and Caribbean men. From this basic profile, Golash-Boza explores the wider socio-economic conditions at work, from race and employment status to a criminal justice system whose only way out for immigrants is deportation.
