Settler Colonialism, Race, and the Law

Natsu Taylor Saito

NYU Press

This chapter considers how the “dynamic of difference” is constructed and maintained with respect to migrant Others. It addresses their racialization, particularly as “foreign,” as well as ways in which they are racially conflated and manipulated. Assimilationism is critiqued as both a form of conceptual disappearance and an illusion intended to maintain settler hegemony. The social and legal control of land, population, and opportunity are viewed in terms of the functions they serve within the American settler colonial state.

Keywords:   migrant Others, immigrants, foreignness, xenophobia, assimilation, criminalization, national security
