The popular discourse on immigration in North America and Western Europe is usually framed in terms of violations to national law, fueled by fear and propped up by the myths of nationhood. The rhetoric maintains that immigrants as individuals threaten jobs, the local economy and the cultural identity of a country. But these views fail to consider the ironic reality: that the developed world, which tries so emphatically to keep poor people out, itself produces the systemic economic conditions that foster migration. ""Dispossessed People"" provides a fresh look at the debate on international migration in general and immigration to the United States, Europe and Canada in particular. It explains clearly why groups migrate and the militarized anxiety that threatens their livelihood. Arguing that migration is a human right, the authors call for better policies that recognize these rights and the many benefits that migrants provide to their new communities. This book is an essential text for policy makers, students and activists who seek justice for the world's vulnerable populations.
