Alicia Schmidt Camacho (Yale University) examines the migrant circuit linking Central America, Mexico, and the United States as an integrated whole. By taking a migrant-centered approach to the complex issues of state security, political sovereignty, and immigration regulation, she argues that the criminalization of unauthorized migrants has been central to a North American project of governance that is profoundly anti-democratic in nature. Migrant movements seek to protect basic human and labor rights by voicing alternative frameworks for defining belonging and citizenship.
