How Effective Is Deportation?

Law Professor Daniel Kanstroom, associate director of Boston College’s Center for Human Rights and International Justice, has written a new book Aftermath: Deportation Law and the New American Diaspora, which questions the effectiveness of deportation as an immigration policy. He was interviewed on “The Takeaway,” a co-production of WNYC Radio and Public Radio International. According to the publisher: Since 1996, when new, harsher deportation laws went into effect, the United States has deported millions of noncitizens back to their countries of origin. Daniel Kanstroom turns his attention to deportation’s aftermath: the actual effects on individuals, families, U.S. communities, and the countries that must process and repatriate ever-increasing numbers of U.S. deportees.
