Thesis

The Slavery and Involuntary Servitude of Immigrant Workers: Two Sides of the Same Coin

Date

Abstract

This essay argues that the current debate over the treatment of immigrant workers must be informed by the Thirteenth Amendment. Otherwise, immigration policy runes the risk of replicating a system where large groups of workers of color, those who work in the fields and in the homes of white citizens, are deprived of basic human rights, labor protections and the right to participate in the political process because of their race and their status as immigrants.
