NEW!! Beacon Press Book Discussion Group

Undocumented: How Immigration Became Illegal, by Aviva Chomsky

  • Dates: 4 Sessions Aug 26 | Sep 9 & 23, 6 PM, in the UU Santa Fe Library
  • Facilitated by Sherry Kraemer
  • Sponsored by Adult Lifelong Learning and the SJ Immigration Team
  • Registration not necessary
  • Study Guide, click here

Immigrant rights activist Aviva Chomsky shows how "illegality" and "undocumentedness" are concepts that were created to exclude and exploit. With a focus on US policy, she probes how and why people, especially Mexican and Central Americans, have been assigned this status—and to what ends. Blending history with human drama, Chomsky explores what it means to be undocumented in a legal, social, economic, and historical context. She also unmasks how undocumented people live—how they work, what social services they're eligible for, and how being undocumented affects the lives of children and families. Undocumented turns a fresh lens onto one of today's most pressing debates.
