The law says that everyone who is not a citizen is an alien, but the social reality is more complicated. The citizen/alien binary can instead by reframed as a spectrum of citizenship wherein green card holders, refugees, veterans, high tech workers, and undocumented immigrants are all seeking ways to belong in America. The paths they face, and the obstacles along the way, are shaped by the present-day immigration enforcement agenda. In this talk, Professor Ming Hsu Chen will elaborate on the concept of pursuing citizenship by drawing on her newly-released book (Pursuing Citizenship in the Enforcement Era, Stanford Press 2020). Her talk will include stories based on interviews with 100+ immigrants in Colorado and proposals in light of the contemporary context of immigration policy. CLE credit pending for Colorado Attorneys.
