This talk explores the close and constitutive relationship between Asian immigration and struggles for migrant justice. How can we understand the continuing impacts of the seminal role that Chinese and later Asian exclusion played in creating the infrastructure of immigration in the United States? What was the relationship between the emergence of an Asian American "model minority" and the growth of mass criminalization and incarceration during the post-civil rights Cold War period? How do these histories help us understand the convergence between immigration and criminalization, or what we can call contemporary "crimmigration"? And how can we highlight the positions of Asian migrants and refugees in contemporary debates about immigration reform, immigration enforcement, and migrant justice?
