1. Robles, David Edward. A review and analysis of United States laws concerning undocumented students.

Degree: 2014, University of Georgia

Research for this study focused on analyzing federal statutes, regulations, case law, legal commentary, and historical documents in order to track the development and determine the current status of laws concerning the education of undocumented alien children in public schools in the United States. The primary data for this study was taken from United States Supreme Court, federal appellate, and district court opinions concerning the law regarding educating undocumented alien children in United States public schools. Legislation involving admission or prohibition of undocumented alien children was also analyzed. Findings in this study include: 1) In Plyler v. Doe (1982), the United States Supreme Court held that under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution protected the right of undocumented students to attend public schools. 2) In Martinez v. Bynum (1983), the Court held that residency requirements for school districts are constitutional, only if the requirements are uniformly applied to all on an equal basis. 3) In 1996, the United States District Court, Central District, state of California, in the case of League of United Latin American Citizens, et al. v. Pete Wilson, et al., district court judge Mariana Pfaelzer held that a majority of California’s Proposition 187 was unconstitutional based upon the federal authority over immigration policy.

2. Jurado, Kathy. Alienated Citizens: "Hispanophobia" and the Mexican Im/Migrant Body.

Degree: PhD, American Culture, 2008, University of Michigan

ABSTRACT Alienated Citizens: “Hispanophobia” and the Mexican Im/migrant Body by Kathy Jurado Chair: María E. Cotera This dissertation analyzes 20th century representations and discursive constructions of the Mexican im/migrant body through an eclectic variety of cultural texts produced during three “Hispanophobic” moments in American history. The Depression era, the Post War era and the mid 1990s have been isolated as key historical moments when the Mexican im/migrant body becomes highly visible in public discourse as evidenced in the deportation drives of 1930 and 1954 as well as the heightened nativism evidenced in 1994 when Proposition 187 was passed in California. During these moments, the Mexican body became a metaphoric landscape upon which broader questions of citizenship and national identity were battled. Anti-immigrant rhetoric circulating at these times racialized and pathologized the ethnic Mexican body resulting in profoundly dehumanizing effects that extended onto the Mexican/American community living in the United States. More importantly, however, I show how Latina/o culture workers have consistently identified and challenged these dehumanizing discourses in their cultural productions and in effect rehumanized the oft maligned Mexican im/migrant body. The works of the various Latina/o authors and artists this dissertation analyzes reveal the complex ways in which citizenship and race are problematically conflated and blurred particularly during politically charged times. This dissertation engages an interdisciplinary approach by looking at novels (such as The Adventures of Don Chipote and Under the Feet of Jesus), scholarly research (like Jovita Gonzalez’s Master’s Thesis and Ernesto Galarza’s commissioned report Strangers in Our Fields) and on-line digital media (as evidenced in the work of Alex Rivera and Lalo Alcaraz) in order to map the long history of articulated responses to dehumanizing, anti-immigrant rhetoric. Further, this dissertation will show how the works of these Latina/o culture workers constitute vital, if obscured, counter-narratives that fill in the historical gaps, erasures and misconceptions that have continuously marginalized, if not erased, Mexican Americans from the U.S. national imaginary. Advisors/Committee Members: Cotera, Maria (committee member), Benamou, Catherine L. (committee member), Gonzalez, John Moran (committee member), Stern, Alexandra (committee member).
