2012 news archive
Newton, MA--Boston College Center for Human Rights and International Justice Associate Director Daniel Kanstroom, Professor of Law at Boston College, discussed his new book Aftermath: Deportation Law and the New American Diaspora, at a book launch even on September 12, at 5:00 p.m. in the Heights Room, Corcoran Commons, Boston College.
Detailing research both in the U.S. and abroad, the book examines the large and increasing number of deportees that have been expelled from the U.S. and the harsh realities they often face in their new communities. It also closely examines the current deportation regime and whether it "works" in any meaningful sense, while offering his recommendations for reform to create a more humane and just system.
Mary Waters, Professor of Sociology at Harvard University, spoke after Prof. Kanstroom, offering further context for the book, discussing the social effects of U.S. immigration policy on immigrant families and communities.
