Join NACLA and renowned author David Bacon, along with Jane Guskin, co-author of The Politics of Immigration: Questions and Answers, and a representative from Families for Freedom, for a discussion of David's latest book:
Illegal People: How Globalization Creates Migration and Criminalizes Immigrants
(Beacon, $25.95, 272p, ISBN 978-0-8070-4226-7)
A veteran photojournalist explores the human side of globalization and argues for new ways to think about and legislate around immigration.
Through interviews and on-the-spot reporting from both impoverished communities abroad and American immigrant workplaces and neighborhoods, Bacon shows how the United States' trade and economic policy abroad, in seeking to create a favorable investment climate for large corporations, creates conditions to displace communities and set migration into motion. Trade policy and immigration are intimately linked, Bacon argues, and are, in fact, elements of a single economic system.
