The Ethics of Nation
This concluding chapter argues that the disjunctures brought about by immigration are not unique to the United States. They are common to most western European nations, as well as Canada, Australia, and Japan. Like the United States, nations with European ethno-racial identities (which include Canada and Australia) have given increased space to nativist political forces and have allowed legal expressions of xenophobia to taint the otherwise liberal and even leftist juridical agendas that characterize these nations. New immigrants to these European nations are the targets of nativist agendas that constitute them as essentially different legal subjects from western Europeans. Hence, they are subject to extraordinary political speech and practices from increasingly popular nativist political parties.
