Introduction: Mass Deportation and the Neoliberal Cycle

2.277 Aufrufe

Veröffentlicht am

The introduction begins with the story of Eric, a young deportee from Guatemala. This chapter uses Eric’s story to introduce the concept of a “neoliberal cycle,” which refers to the interconnected aspects of neoliberal reforms implemented in the United States and abroad. These elements include outsourcing; economic
restructuring; cutbacks in social services; the enhancement of the police, the military, and immigration enforcement; and the privatization of public services. Through a consideration of the neoliberal cycle, we learn how a study of deportation helps us to see the connections between mass incarceration, global capitalism, and economic restructuring in the United States.
