New PDF release: Alienated: Immigrant Rights, the Constitution ,and Equality

By Victor Romero

Throughout American heritage, the govt. has used U.S. citizenship and immigration legislations to guard privileged teams from much less privileged ones, utilizing citizenship as a 8220:legitimat a 8221; proxy for in a different way invidious, and infrequently unconstitutional, discrimination at the foundation of race. whereas racial discrimination isn't legally appropriate at the present time, profiling at the foundation of citizenship continues to be mostly unchecked, and has actually arguably elevated within the wake of the September eleven terror assaults at the usa. during this considerate exam of the intersection among American immigration and constitutional legislations, Victor C. Romero attracts our awareness to a 8220;constitutional immigration legislation paradox 8221; that reserves definite rights for U.S. voters in basic terms, whereas concurrently purporting to regard everyone relatively below constitutional legislations despite citizenship.As a naturalized Filipino American, Romero brings an outsider's viewpoint to Alienated, forcing us to examine constitutional immigration legislation from the vantage aspect of individuals whose citizenship prestige is murky (either legally or from the perspective of different electorate and lawmakers), together with foreign-born adoptees, undocumented immigrants, travelers, overseas scholars, and related gender bi nationwide companions. Romero endorses an equality established interpreting of the structure and advocates a brand new theoretical and sensible technique that protects the person rights of non-citizens with no sacrificing their personhood.
