Abstract

Home to Ellis Island, New Jersey has been the first stop for many immigrant groups for well over a century. Yet in this highly diverse state, some of the most anti-immigrant policies in the nation are being tested at the municipal level. Based on her work as an engaged scholar and drawing from critical ethnic studies approaches, Robyn Magalit Rodriguez explores the impact of anti-immigrant local ordinances on a range of immigrant groups living in varied suburban communities, from undocumented Latinos in predominantly white suburbs to long-established Asian immigrants in “majority-minority” suburbs.
