Production of State, Capital, and Citizenry: The Case of Operation Gatekeeper

Huspek investigates the increased reliance of the Immigration and Naturalization Service and state and local police agencies on military terminology, with an emphasis on the impact this has had on unauthorized migrants and state practices. How was Operation Gatekeeper “operationalized”? How have unauthorized practices been affected? Huspek explores the relationship between the state and the citizenry, as well as that between the state and capital.
