Salisbury University’s Tim Dunn, Author of Books on the US-Mexico Border, Can Discuss Obama’s Immigration Announcements

21-Nov-2014 10:05 AM EST, by Salisbury University

Dr. Timothy J. Dunn of Salisbury University’s Sociology Department is available for interviews with reporters on immigration following President Barack Obama’s announcements of executive action on the issue.

Dunn is the author of Blockading the Border and Human Rights: The El Paso Operation That Remade Immigration Enforcement.

“Dunn’s brilliant analysis is essential to understanding the origins of a flawed border policy that went on to turn a relatively small, circular flow of seasonal workers going into three states into a huge population of settled families living in 50 states,” said Dr. Douglas Massey, president of the American Academy of Political and Social Science and professor of sociology and public affairs at Princeton University.

Others have called it “a must-read book for understanding the conflictive situations that nationally planned border policy can produce in local communities.”

Dunn also researched immigration for his 1996 book The Militarization of the U.S.-Mexico Border, 1978-1992: Low-Intensity Conflict Doctrine Comes Home.

To schedule an interview, please call the SU Public Relations office at 410-543-6030 or e-mail kmcurtin@salisbury.edu.
