Summary
Rights, Deportation, and Detention in the Age of immigration Control focuses on what is arguably the most contested, dynamic, and evolving set of immigration policies-immigration control-by analyzing state efforts to deter so-called "unwanted" immigration through the denial of rights to non-citizens, their physical removal and exclusion from the polity through deportation, and their deprivation of liberty and freedom of movement in immigration detention. In addition to answering the question of why states do what they do, the book describes contemporary trends in immigration control, analyzes the determinants of these trends, and examines whether efforts to deter unwanted immigration are actually working.
