DENIED, DETAINED, DEPORTED
Stories From the Dark Side of American Immigration
Her book creates a bridge from the lessons of the past to the present with fascinating analysis of how our past has influenced modern events and current views on immigration. Among the lesser-known stories of those denied, detained, and deported: The St. Louis, a ship filled with Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany that sought refuge in American ports and was turned away, condemning many of its passengers to ultimately perish in the Holocaust; Japanese Americans rounded up during World War II and placed in detention centers-regardless of their patriotism; and Emma Goldman, who was branded a dangerous extremist and sent back to Russia in 1919 after living 30 years in the United States.
