Those Damned Immigrants

The election of Barack Obama prompted people around the world to herald the dawning of a new, postracial era in America. Yet a scant one month after Obama's election, Jose Oswaldo Sucuzhanay, a 31-year old Ecuadorian immigrant, was ambushed by a group of white men as he walked arm and arm with his brother. Yelling anti-Latino slurs, the men beat Sucuzhanay into a coma. He died 5 days later. The incident is one of countless attacks—ranging from physical violence to raids on homes and workplaces to verbal abuse—that Latino/a immigrants have confronted for generations in America. And these attacks—physical and otherwise—are accepted by a substantial number of American citizens and elected officials, who are virulently opposed to immigrant groups crossing the Mexican border. Quick to cast all Latino/a immigrants as illegal, opponents have placed undocumented workers at the center of their anti-immigrant movement, and as such, many different types of native Spanish-speakers in this country (legal, illegal, citizen, guest), have been targeted as being responsible for increasing crime rates, a plummeting economy, and an erosion of traditional American values and culture. In Those Damned Immigrants, Ediberto Román takes on critics of Latina/o immigration, drawing on empirical evidence to refute charges of links between immigration and crime, economic downfall, and a weakening of Anglo culture. Román utilizes government statistics, economic data, historical records, and social science research to provide a counter-narrative to what he argues is a largely one-sided public discourse on Latino/a immigration.

Au cours du deuxième semestre de l’année 1964, les suites de la reconnaissance de la République populaire de Chine sont notables: on remarque le début d’une réelle concertation des diplomaties française et chinoise à propos de la situation en Asie du Sud-Est, en particulier à propos de la situation au Vietnam. On assiste en effet à un tournant de la situation militaire avec l’incident du golfe du Tonkin. Dans une péninsule indochinoise qui bascule dans la guerre, la France tente bien de prêcher la neutralité aux factions laotiennes et au prince Norodom Sihanouk, et se trouve donc en désaccord avec les États-Unis. L’autre grand domaine d’intervention de la France est le continent latino-américain, avec le deuxième voyage du général de Gaulle dans les pays d’Amérique du Sud. L’ouverture de la France se confirme avec les pays d’Europe de l’Est, à la faveur notamment de la visite du Premier ministre Maurer, venu parler à de Gaulle de la volonté d’indépendance de son pays, malgré la tutelle soviétique. En Europe occidentale, les rencontres franco-allemandes, qui se poursuivent sous l’égide du traité de l’Élysée, ne peuvent dissimuler le refroidissement des relations entre Paris et Bonn, que tout – ou presque – oppose à ce moment-là.
