Family Activism: Immigrant Struggles and the Politics of Noncitizenship

NOTES

INTRODUCTION

1. In some cases ideological and strategic differences have led to organizers taking different routes.

2. “Nation as house,” argues Santa Ana, has been a metaphor used since the 1800s, making “immigration as dangerous waters” a metaphor that is therefore interwoven in a complex of other metaphors such as “nation as house” that help to make it commonsensical, resonate with a broader public, and a dominant view.

3. The memo to ICE field officers states that in the case of nursing mothers, absent a national security threat, mothers should be released; or if necessary, the nursing child should be housed with a mother in detention. See Immigration and Customs Enforcement, “Memo for All Field Office Directors and All Special Agents in Charge from Julie Meyers, Assistant Director of ICE, Regarding Prosecutorial and Custody Discretion, November 7, 2007,” http://www.ice.gov/ doclib/foia/prosecutorial-discretion/custody-pd.pdf.


CHAPTER 1: FROM REUNIFICATION TO SEPARATION

1. The Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1952 (McCarran-Walter Act), U.S. Department of State, http//www.state.gov/r/pa/ho/time/cwr/87719.htm.

2. After the Supreme Court found section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional in July 2013, U.S. embassies and consulates started adjudicating visa applications that are based on a same-sex marriage. Same-sex spouses of U.S. citizens and LPRs, along with their minor children, are now eligible for the same immigration benefits as oppositesex spouses. http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/types/types_1306.html; http://travel .state.gov/visa/frvi/frvi_6036.html. However, implementation is complicated by the fact that the marriage must be recognized in one of the two jurisdictions where couples reside; and the investigation process for the spouse residing in another country may result in an involuntary “outing” that may have detrimental personal consequences for the applicant. http://colorlines .com/archives/2013/ 0 9/lgbt_immigrants_could_face_hard_road_in_applying_for _marriage-based_visas.html. Also, in October 2012 DHS issued written guidance to its field officers indicating that long-term same-sex partners should be considered as family members and therefore as a positive factor in exercising discretion. http://immigrationequality. org/ issues/couples-and-families/prosecutorial-discretion/. This memo “defines same-sex relationships which qualify as family relationships for purposes of prosecutorial discretion as those in which the individuals: 1) are each other’s sole domestic partner and intend to remain so indefinitely; 2) are not in a marital or other domestic relationship with anyone else; and 3) typically maintain a common residence and share financial obligations and assets…. The October 2012 memorandum also makes clear that a legal marriage is not necessary for the relationship to be considered.” http://www.livesaymyers.com/prosecutorial-discretion-same-sex-couples/.
