CTN PEER MENTOR, JULIA PRESTON, PUBLISHES REVIEW IN NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS


CTN Peer Mentor, Julia Preston, published a review of two books in the New York Review of Books, a semi-monthly magazine with articles on literature, culture, economics, science and current affairs.  In her review of The Battle to Stay in America by Michael Kegan, she says “Kagan, a law professor at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, tells stories of his neighbors and of clients at the university law clinic he runs. He provides an unusually accessible primer on immigration law and a valuable guide to the ways it currently works to perpetuate an excluded immigrant underclass with diminished rights.”  Her review of The Deportation Machine by Adam Goodman, states “Adam Goodman, an assistant professor of history and Latin American and Latino studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago, comprehensively recasts the way we think about expulsions from the US and their effects. Although formal deportations—those ordered by an immigration court or other federal authority—have become a dominant means of enforcement only since the 1990s, Goodman shows that coerced departures by various means have been a powerful form of immigration control, exercised by federal and sometimes local authorities, since at least the late nineteenth century.”
