Angela S. García, Assistant Professor of Social Service Administration at the University of Chicago presented on her book, Legal Passing: Navigating Undocumented Life and Local Immigration Law. This book talk analyzes the ways federal, state, and local immigration laws shape the lives of undocumented Mexicans in the US. Comparing restrictive and accommodating immigration measures in various cities and states, it shows that place-based inclusion and exclusion unfold for immigrants in seemingly contradictory ways. This event was sponsored by the Center for Research on Social Change, Latinx Research Center, Center for the Study of Law and Society, and the Berkeley Interdisciplinary Migration Initiative.
