Rallying for Immigrant Rights

Show Summary Details

Preview

From Alaska to Florida, millions of immigrants and their supporters took to the streets across the United States to rally for immigrant rights in the spring of 2006. The scope and size of their protests, rallies, and boycotts made these the most significant events of political activism in the United States since the 1960s. This book offers a comprehensive analysis of this historic moment. It traces the evolution and legacy of the 2006 protest movement in engaging, theoretically informed discussions. It addresses topics including unions, churches, the media, immigrant organizations, and immigrant politics. Today, one in eight U.S. residents was born outside the country, but for many, lack of citizenship makes political voice through the ballot box impossible. This book helps us better understand how immigrants are making their voices heard in other ways.
