Suffer the Little Children: Child Migration and the Geopolitics of Compassion in the United States, with Anita Casavantes Bradford
In Suffer the Little Children, Anita Casavantes Bradford traces the evolution of American policy toward unaccompanied children, starting with the European children who fled the perils of World War II and ending with the Central American children who arrive every day at the U.Sthis. southern border. Even after the creation of the Unaccompanied Refugee Minors program in 1980, the federal government has failed to see migrant children as individual rights-bearing subjects. The claims of these children, especially those who are poor, nonwhite, and non-Christian, continue to be evaluated not in terms of their unique circumstances but rather in terms of broader implications for migratory flows from their homelands. This book urgently demonstrates that U.S. policy must evolve in order to ameliorate the desperate needs of unaccompanied children.

This UCI Authors Talk is co-sponsored by the UC Humanities Research Institute, as part of its initiative on Refuge and Its Refusals.
