(A lawyer and professor describes growing up with a Mexica...)
A lawyer and professor describes growing up with a Mexican American mother who denied her heritage, and an Anglo father, and discusses racial identity in American society.
(This anthology offers a range of legal and related litera...)
This anthology offers a range of legal and related literature analyzing the major issues of race and civil rights in the modern United States. Unlike previous works, which have tended to focus on the relationship between Caucasians and African Americans, this anthology considers race and civil rights issues from a wide range of minority perspectives - African American, Asian American, Latino, and Native American.
(For the first time in United States history, the Year 200...)
For the first time in United States history, the Year 2000 census allowed people to check more than one box to identify their race. This new way of gathering data and characterizing race and ethnicity reflects important changes in how racial identity is understood in America. Besides acknowledging the presence of mixed-race citizens, this new understanding promises to have major implications for American law and policy. With this anthology, Kevin R. Johnson brings together ground-breaking scholarship on the mixed-race experience in America to examine the impact of the law on these citizens.
(Seeking to re-imagine the meaning and significance of the...)
Seeking to re-imagine the meaning and significance of the international border, Opening the Floodgates makes a case for eliminating the border as a legal construct that impedes the movement of people into this country. Open migration policies deserve fuller analysis, as evidenced by President Barack Obama's pledge to make immigration reform a priority. Kevin R. Johnson offers an alternative vision of how United States borders might be reconfigured, grounded in moral, economic, and policy arguments for open borders. Importantly, liberalizing migration through an open borders policy would recognize that the enforcement of closed borders cannot stifle the strong, perhaps irresistible, economic, social, and political pressures that fuel international migration. Controversially, Johnson suggests that open borders are entirely consistent with efforts to prevent terrorism that have dominated immigration enforcement since the events of September 11, 2001.
(Understanding Immigration Law lays out the basics of U.S....)
Understanding Immigration Law lays out the basics of U.S. immigration law in an accessible way to newcomers to the field. It offers background about the intellectual, historical, and constitutional foundations of U.S. immigration law. The book also identifies the factors that have historically fueled migration to the United States, including the economic "pull" of jobs and family in the United States and the "push" of economic hardship, political instability, and other facts of life in the sending country.
(This complex litigation casebook focuses on complex cases...)
This complex litigation casebook focuses on complex cases brought by lawyers seeking to promote social reform. A significant portion of the book is devoted to so-called impact class actions, which are designed to have an "impact" and bring forth social change.
(Americans from radically different political persuasions ...)
Americans from radically different political persuasions agree on the need to "fix" the "broken" United States immigration laws to address serious deficiencies and improve border enforcement. In Immigration Law and the U.S. - Mexico Border: ¿Sí se puede?, Kevin Johnson and Bernard Trujillo focus on what for many is at the core of the entire immigration debate in modern America: immigration from Mexico. In clear, reasonable prose, Johnson and Trujillo explore the long history of discrimination against United States citizens of Mexican ancestry in the United States and the current movement against "illegal aliens" - people depicted as not deserving fair treatment by United States law.
(This first edition casebook approaches immigration law an...)
This first edition casebook approaches immigration law and policy from a public interest perspective with a special emphasis on issues of social justice. Along with cases and statutory material, Immigration Law and Social Justice also employs a wide variety of materials from appellate cases, client examples, article excerpts, and hypotheticals.
