review Impossible Subjects Illegal Aliens and the Making of Modern America 103 This book traces the origins of the illegal alien in American law and society explaining why and how illegal migration became the central problem in US immigration policy a process that profoundly shaped ideas and practices about citizenship race and state authority in the twentieth centuryMae Ngai offers a close reading of the legal regime of restriction that commenced in the 1920s its statutory architecture judicial genealogies administrative enforcement differential treatment of European and non European migrants and long term effects In well drawn historical p. I am in no way an expert on this area of American history so to me this book was pretty informative just in terms of filling in a fairly sketchy understanding of the history of immigration The section on the construction of the illegal alien was particularly interesting I do think the trajectory of Asian Americans from menace to model minority could ve been fully articulated and I would have also liked to read about the relationships between different immigrant groups instead of just their relationships with the white majorityStill only three stars because straight up history books bore me even if the information is good useful etc
