"They Take Our Jobs!" (Revised)

And 20 Other Myths about Immigration

Author: Aviva Chomsky

Revised and expanded edition of the groundbreaking book that demystifies twenty-one of the most widespread myths and beliefs about immigrants and immigration

In “They Take Our Jobs!” Aviva Chomsky challenges the underlying assumptions that fuel misinformed claims about immigrants, radically altering our notions of citizenship, discrimination, and US history. Since it was first published, many of the same myths about immigration, such as “immigrants take American jobs,” “immigrants don’t pay taxes,” and “immigrants increase crime,” continue to be perpetuated and used to promote aggressive anti-immigration policies. In a new introduction, Chomsky reflects on the events of the past ten years. She analyzes declining Mexican immigration patterns, illuminates Mexico’s little-known Southern Border Program, and assesses Barack Obama’s complicated legacy as “deporter-in-chief,” which, Chomsky argues, laid the groundwork for Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant racism.
