“A critical and timely treatment of what has become, both intentionally and inadvertently, a central tenet of contemporary U.S. immigration policy: mass deportation. The co-editors provide effective rationale for the need to question the efficacy as well as ethics of deportation, an especially harsh approach that undermines health, education, and basic human rights for millions of people.”
—James Loucky, Western Washington University
"This remarkable volume brings together an unprecedented set of scholars from many disciplines to provide voice to the many millions in the U.S. who face the threat of detention and deportation in their everyday routines. The mix of careful legal analysis, social science research, and examination of the profound effects on families, children and youth in this book provides extraordinarily important guidance for those working with, representing, or studying the unauthorized and their family members in the U.S."
—Hirokazu Yoshikawa, Courtney Sale Ross Professor of Globalization and Education and University Professor, NYU
"In The New Deportations Delirium, practitioners from an array of disciplines peel away at the varieties of invidious ways in which the policy is enacted and lived in real people's lives. Kanstroom and Lykes have assembled a tour-de-force cast of authors to provide unique and important insights into the U.S. 'deportation delirium.'"
—Carola Suárez-Orozco, University of California, Los Angeles
"A truly interdisciplinary work which provides the reader with a unique perspective on deportation and its impact on communities both in the United States and receiving countries. I would recommend this book to undergraduate, graduate students and policy makers with a serious interest in studying this subject."
—Richard A. Boswell, Professor of Law & Associate Dean for Global Programs, U.C. Hastings College of the Law
“The New Deportation Delirium is a timely and informative book, and American citizens and policymakers would be well served to acquaint themselves with its message.”
—Anthropology Review Database
“By analyzing the critical ambiguities in current deportation law, the plight of ‘mixed-status’ families, the pressures facing immigration judges, and many other problems, this book makes a substantial contribution.”
“Ideal for undergraduate and graduate students new to the study of migration and enforcement, The New Deportation Delirium traces the historical development of deportation since 1996 and details the intended and unintended consequences of these policies across time, space, and generations. It offers a rich and nuanced survey of some of the principle arguments across disciplines, while offering new ways to view and understand research and practice for those more seasoned in the debates on detention and deportation.”
