Abstract:

We examine the expansive misinformation and myths targeted at two migratory groups. One of these consists of the ?roaming bands? of gypsies located in Eastern Europe, especially in nation states of the former Soviet Union and Romania. The other migratory group, we study, are Mexican immigrants, especially undocumented, in the United States that are here for seasonal and service sector employment opportunities. We join the ranks of social and political scientists analyzing the role of racial and ethnic identities (including the accompanying stereotyping) and their impact on the construction of knowledge and information.
