A New Approach to Immigration Justice
This chapter identifies four ways in which the descriptive, phenomenological account of socially undocumented identity offered over the course of these chapters shifts our focus in terms of the ethics of immigration. They include (1) a focus on oppression; (2) an employment of philosophical resources for understanding how social identities operate in the pursuit of immigration justice; (3) a focus on the perspectives and organizing activities of socially undocumented people themselves; and (4) a reframing of the philosophical “open borders debate” in light of the realities of socially undocumented oppression (as discussed in Chapters 6 and 7). Second, it offers a series of proposals for combating socially undocumented oppression as a matter of relational egalitarian justice.
