The course examines U.S. deportation campaigns targeted at Latina/o workers, residents, and U.S.-born citizens. We will address the development of deportation policies and their deployment throughout the nation's history. The course will also examine the criminalization of Latina/o immigrants, police and military tactics of the federal government, and administrative and legal mechanisms and institutions that have been created to facilitate deportation. Ultimately, the course aims to provide students with a grounded knowledge of U.S. deportation history in order to contextualize the broader national debate about immigration reform that is occurring today.
