Book chapter

A book covering the theory and practice of No One Is Illegal, one of the most dynamic groups in North America. By reframing immigrant rights movements within a transnational analysis of capitalism, labor exploitation, settler-colonialism, state-building and racialized empire, this book provides the alternative conceptual frameworks of border imperialism and decolonization. Drawing on her own organizing experience, the author explores strategies to cultivate healthy and self-determined communities.
