Summary
Todays political controversy over immigration highlights the plight of the working class in this country as perhaps no other issue has recently done. The political status of immigrants exposes the power dynamics of the new working class, which includes the former labor aristocracy, women, and people of color. This new working class suffers exploitation in many ways in this and other advanced industrial countries as the social cost of capitalisms success in a neoliberal and globalized political economy. Paradoxically, as borders become more open, they are also increasingly fortified, subjecting many workers to the suspension of law. It is Kathleen Arnolds purpose in this book to analyze the role of the states prerogative power in creating and sustaining this condition of severe inequality for the most marginalized sectors of our population in the United States
