A vital discussion on the global corporate economy, U.S. immigration policy, and reform. Illegal People (Beacon Press) shows how the United States' trade and economic policy abroad, in seeking to create a favorable investment climate for large corporations, creates conditions to displace communities and set migration into motion. The Accidental American (Berrett-Koehler Publishers) vividly illustrates the challenges and contradictions of U. S. immigration policy, and argues that, just as there is a free flow of capital in the world economy, there should be a free flow of labor. Co-sponsored by Colorlines magazine.
