"Targeting Immigrants is concerned with the government of "illegal" immigration since passage of the U.S. Immigration Act of 1965. It explores how certain mentalities and intellectual machineries have rendered illegal immigrants as targets of government." "Drawing from printed source materials, including government publications, archival documents, newspapers, and popular magazines, this book traces the languages, voices, and subsequent actions of those authorized to make truth claims about the manage illicit immigration. Targeting Immigrants will be invaluable to those studying immigration, the government of social life, and socio-cultural anthropology of the United States."--BOOK JACKET.
