Popis This book addresses an issue currently making political headlines in the United States – immigration. Immigrants have long engendered debates about the boundaries of belonging, with some singing their praises and others warning of their dangers. In particular, the 11 million unauthorized immigrants in the country provoke heated disagreements, with issues of legality and morality at the forefront. Increasingly, such debates take place online, by organizations in the immigrant rights and the immigration control movements, who engage in symbolic work that includes blurring, crossing, maintaining, solidifying and shifting the boundaries of belonging. Moral and legal criteria interact in these boundary work processes along three primary dimensions – family, citizenship and values. Based on data collected from 29 national-level groups, this book features a cultural sociological analysis of the online materials deployed by social movement organizations debating immigration in the United States. This book offers a cultural sociological exploration of how organizations within the immigrant rights and immigration control movements in the United States make meaning online. It highlights the subtle interplay between morality and legality as they seek to variously maintain, shift, blur and cross the symbolic boundaries of belonging.
