Under One Roof: Unequal Childhoods Within Immigrant Latino Families

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

“Mixed-status” families, those likely to have a U.S. born citizen, a foreign born person with legal residency, and/or a person who is not documented all living under the same roof, present an important and complicated challenge for policy makers. Immigration policies such as "Secure Communities" are increasingly creating “divided fates” within such families. Through this research project, I examine the consequences of immigration policy on mixed-status Latino families, and consider how policy accentuates stratification upon and within families. Immigration policy does so by 1) creating “unequal childhoods” within the family, what I refer to as “one family, two ‘homes’”; 2) structuring everyday opportunity regarding access to social institutions, namely work, school, health and civic engagement; and 3) intensifying a culture of fear which drives immigrants further into the shadows. I conclude with some of the strategies mixed-status family members use to survive and resist stratification.
