Transnational Structures of (Im)mobility among Peruvian Deportees

(p.386) 29 The Afterlife of US Disciplining Institutions
Critical Dialogues in Latinx Studies

As a transnational system, the school-to-prison-to-deportation pipeline enables US disciplining institutions and regimes to operate across borders and extended time-spaces. This chapter examines the central place of such institutions and their afterlife in the production of transnational structures of (im)mobility affecting the lives of deportees and their families and communities. Based on ethnographic fieldwork with Peruvians who were deported to Lima and Callao from the United States between 2009 and 2017, and operating at the intersection of Latinx and Latin American Studies, the chapter reveals how the post-deportation lives of ex-US residents continue to be deeply entangled with and imperiled by the very institutional structures and disciplinary regimes that produced their precarity and led to their banishment from the United States.
