A book talk by David L. Leal and Néstor P. Rodríguez, eds.

We live in an age of global migration. The number of immigrants worldwide is large and growing. At the same time, public and political reactions against immigrants have grown in the U.S., the UK, Canada, and other traditional and non-traditional receiving nations. In response to this trend, this book assembles an interdisciplinary group of scholars to better understand two dimensions of contemporary immigration policy—a growing enforcement and restriction regime in receiving nations, and the subsequent effects on sending nations.

It begins with three background chapters on immigration politics and policies in the United States, Europe, and Mexico. This is followed by eleven chapters about specific receiving and sending nations—four for the United States, three for Europe, and four for the sending nations of Mexico, Turkey, Peru, and Poland. This selection of cases and the multidisciplinary approach provides a unique perspective that supplements more standard case studies and disciplinary research. By discussing a greater range of nations and topics—the global consequences of increased deportations, stronger border security, greater travel restrictions, stagnant economies, and the loss of remittances—this volume fills a significant gap in the current body of literature. As such, this book is of interest to immigration policy scholars and students of all levels as well as individuals in think tanks, advocacy communities, the media, and governments.

Néstor Rodríguez has conducted international research in Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador, and has traveled and lectured in China and Japan. His present research focuses on Guatemalan migration, U.S. deportations to Mexico and Central America, the unauthorized migration of unaccompanied minors, evolving relations between Latinos and African Americans/Asian Americans, and ethical and human rights issues of border enforcement.


David Leal has been a professor at The University of Texas at Austin since 2002. His primary academic interests are Latino politics and policy, and he has taught classes such as Latino Politics, Mexican American Public Policy Studies, Politics and Religion, and the U.S. Congress. His Latino politics research spans the fields of political behavior, public policy, and public opinion. In addition, his work incorporates insights from disciplines such as sociology, economics, ethnic studies, and religious studies.
