Product Description

In all the noisy rhetoric currently surrounding immigration, one important question is rarely asked: What ethical responsibilities do immigrants and citizens have to each other? In this book, Tisha Rajendra reframes the confused and often heated debate over immigration around the world, proposes a new definition of justice based on responsibility to relationships, and develops a Christian ethic to address this vexing social problem.

Editorial Reviews

David Hollenbach, SJ
— Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University
"A creative contribution to the urgent ethical challenges raised by migration today. Drawing on social analysis and Christian thought, Rajendra shows that treating migrants justly will require rethinking and reshaping the social, political, and economic relationships that set the context for the movement of people today. Essential reading for all concerned with ethics and migration."

Karen Lebacqz
— author of Six Theories of Justice
"What a joy to find wisdom and reason brought to bear on this contentious issue! Using case studies to illustrate the complexities of immigration, Rajendra exposes flaws in common narratives about immigrants. In clear and compelling prose, she then presents a stellar explication and critique of dominant theories of international justice and a carefully crafted argument for what justice requires in the arena of immigration. This is a must-read book not only for those who are interested in immigration policy but also for anyone searching for an adequate theory of justice in our complex world."

Paul Louis Metzger
— author of Connecting Christ: How to Discuss Jesus in a World of Diverse Paths
"In tackling the pressing social issue of immigration reform, Rajendra’s Migrants and Citizens exposes and reforms our understanding of who we really are as human beings. A prophetic and revealing work."
