Encounters with Illegality

(p.1) Introduction
Illegal Encounters

The book’s introduction outlines key themes and concepts of the volume. It describes how children and youth encounter, move through, or are outside of a range of legal processes, including border enforcement, immigration detention, federal custody, courts, and state processes of categorization. After reviewing relevant U.S. immigration legislation, the authors argue that, even if young people do not directly interact with state immigration systems, they are nonetheless deeply impacted by the reach of the government in its many forms. The chapter describes how young people as move into, through, and out of complicated immigration systems and institutions in the United States.
