"Incisive and compelling, reflecting the painful wisdom and knowledge that Bill Ong Hing has accrued over the course of fifty years..." --Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow First book to argue that immigrant and refugee rights are part of the fight for racial justice; offers a humanitarian approach to reform and abolition. Representing non-citizens caught up in what he calls the immigration and enforcement "meat grinder", Bill Ong Hing witnessed their trauma, arriving at this conclusion: migrants should have the right to free movement across borders--and the right to live free of harassment over immigration status. He cites examples of racial injustices endemic in immigration law and enforcement, from historic courtroom cases to the recent treatment of Haitian migrants. Hing includes histories of Mexican immigration, African migration and the Asian exclusion era, all of which reveal ICE abuse and a history of often forgotten racist immigration laws. While ultimately arguing for the abolishment of ICE, Hing advocates for change now. With fifty years of law practice and litigation, Hing has represented non-citizens -- from gang members to asylum seekers fleeing violence, and from individuals in ICE detention to families at the US southern border seeking refuge. Hing maps out major reforms to the immigration system, making an urgent call for the adoption of a radical, racial justice lens. Readers will understand the root causes of migration and our country's culpability in contributing to those causes.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Bill Ong HingPublisher: Beacon PressPublished: 10/24/2023ISBN: 9780807008027Pages: 272Weight: 1.25lbsReview Citations: Kirkus Reviews 08/01/2023Booklist 09/15/2023 pg. 4
