Summary
"Disenchanting citizenship explores the meaning of U.S. citizenship through the experience of a unique group of Mexican migrants who were granted Temporary Status under the 'legalization' provisions of the 1986 IRCA, attained Lawful Permanent Residency, and later became U.S. citizens. Luis F.B. Plascencia integrates an extensive and multifaceted collection of interviews, ethnographic fieldwork, ethno-historical research, and public policy analysis in examining efforts to promote the acquisition of citizenship, the teaching of citizenship classes, and naturalization ceremonies. Ultimately, he unearths citizenship's root as a Janus-faced construct that encompasses a simultaneous process of inclusion and exclusion. This notion of citizenship is mapped on to the migrant experience, with the surprising result that the acquisition of citizenship can lead to disenchantment with the very status desired. In the end, Plascencia expands our understanding of the dynamics of U.S. citizenship as a form of membership and belonging."--Page 4 of cover
