Criminal Alien-Nations: Child Migrants to the United States Deported as “Criminal Alien” Adults

presented by Tobin M. Hansen
PhD candidate, UO Department of Anthropology 

Guards remove handcuffs and leg-irons before deporting a group of men to Mexico.

What are the motivations for and the consequences of deporting long-time U.S. residents as “criminal aliens”? This research examines the exclusionary logics and mechanisms by which some childhood arrivals to the United States are ensnared in crime control regimes and, as adults, are incarcerated, designated “criminal aliens,” and deported to Mexico. It also explores the aftermath of deportation as men forge ahead with their lives in unfamiliar northern Mexico communities. This talk will situate deportation’s social, gendered, and legal processes that render it a forcible sociopolitical displacement. I argue that deportees’ extreme hardship and multiple vulnerabilities recast the moral valuation of “criminal alien” deportation itself.

Tobin Hansen received a CLLAS Graduate Research Grant in support of this work.

“Cuentos para Dormir” — Bedtime Stories by Deported Parents (DREAMers Moms USA/Tijuana A.C.)

Public lecture, display of books, binational book reading with DREAMers Moms and students from El Colegio de la Frontera Norte.

Cuentos para Dormir (Bedtime stories by deported parents) is an original book series of children’s books written by deported Mexican parents living in Tijuana, BC, Mexico. All the books in the series are original books written by the parents for their children. The books describe the first hand experiences of deportation and family separation, as experienced by the parents. The books are beautifully illustrated and tell very poignant stories of parents yearning to be reunited with their children.
