Behind Crimmigration: ICE, Law Enforcement, and Resistance in America by Felicia Arriaga
“I can’t emphasize enough how important it is for scholars and students to have access to the story Felicia Arriaga tells us about local immigration law enforcement in North Carolina. Based on a wealth of data and field research, Arriaga’s arguments about racialized social control add to the conversations surrounding immigration enforcement and tell a powerful story at the same time.”—Tanya Golash-Boza, author of Deported: Immigrant Policing, Disposable Labor and Global Capitalism
“Behind Crimmigration is a deep dive into the messy local politics of immigration policy in the United States today. Through on-the-ground research and insightful analysis, Felicia Arriaga shows us that immigration policies—and immigration politics—develop far from Washington. Taking us into county commission meetings in North Carolina and giving us a close view of sheriff’s departments’ operations throughout the state, Arriaga uncovers the local politics that turn local cops into immigration agents. ICE calls them force multipliers, but to migrants across North Carolina, they are the entry point into the immigration prison and deportation pipeline—and the object of community resistance.”—César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández, Ohio State University, and author of Migrating to Prison and Crimmigration Law.
