Summary "This book explores the relationship between illegal migration and globalization. Under globalizing forces, migration law has been transformed into the last bastion of sovereignty. This explains the worldwide crackdown on extra-legal migration, and informs the shape this crackdown is taking, liven as states ratchet up provisions to end illegal migration, the phenomenon becomes increasingly significant legally, politically, ethically, and numerically. This book makes the innovative argument that the current state of migration law is vital to understanding globalization. It shows the intertwining of refugee law, security, trafficking and smuggling, and new citizenship laws, with particular attention to how the United States and the European Union define and defy what counts as global. Making People Illegal evaluates why migration law in the twenty-first century is markedly different from even the recent past, and argues that this is a harbinger of paradigm shift in the rule of law."--BOOK JACKET.
