States of Immigration: The History, Culture, and Politics of Inclusion and Exclusion

Preparation for a book, state-specific reports, several articles, and conference and workshop papers on four states of immigration with very different and revealing traditions and policies: Arizona and New Mexico in the Southwest, and the Beltway States of Maryland and Virgina.

This proposed project, States of Immigration, will provide the first in-depth, comparative analysis of the distinctive history, culture, and governing regimes of specific states shaping immigrant inclusion and exclusion. Our study trains a spotlight on four states of immigration with very different and revealing traditions and policies: Arizona and New Mexico in the Southwest and the Beltway States of Maryland and Virgina. The new knowledge will allow us to understand when and why a state's response to immigration is inclusive or exclusive and how the reaction to immigration impacts the character and culture of the state more broadly. We offer new insights on how integration is shaped by not just who the immigrant is, but also where one settles and when one arrives.
