Pursuing Citizenship in the Enforcement Era by Ming Hsu Chen provides readers with the everyday perspectives of immigrants on what it is like to try to integrate into American society during a time when immigration policy is focused on enforcement and exclusion. The law says that everyone who is not a citizen is an alien, but the social reality is more complicated. Chen will join Migrations taskforce co-chair Shannon Gleeson in conversation to discuss the citizen/alien binary, theories of citizenship, and how to construct pathways to citizenship that enhance both formal and substantive equality of immigrants.
