Getting Caught

Targets of Deportation Policy

(p.167) 5 Getting Caught

Tanya Maria Golash-Boza

This chapter explains how deportees are caught in the deportation dragnet. It provides insight into why Latino and Caribbean men are the primary targets of mass deportation and helps us to understand how mass deportation creates a system of racialized and gendered social control. It argues that immigrant policing is designed not to remove all immigration offenders but to control labor and legitimize the state. This system of control is intensified insofar as immigration law enforcement operates without the basic protections we take for granted in criminal law enforcement

Keywords:   social control, mass deportation, policing, immigrants, labor, immigration law enforcement, criminal law enforcement
