Migration and discrimination: Contradictory discourses regarding repatriations in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico

Hector Antonio Padilla, Irasema Coronado

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter focuses on the deportation process of people of Mexican origin that have resided in the United States for years. American immigration policy conflates undocumented migrant workers with criminal aliens, thereby using blunt force of American immigration policy. The chapter details the human rights crises of American immigration deportation policy. Case studies illuminate the problem from an individual perspective that renders individuals as stateless persons in Mexico's northern border cities.
