Queer and trans migrants are targeted by illegalization, detention, and deportation, and are at the forefront of efforts to resist such practices in the United States. In this talk, professor Eithne Luibhéid introduces the edited volume Queer and Trans migrations: dynamics of illegalization, detention and deportation (with Karma R. Chávez, 2020) to discuss the ways in which these interlocking systems impact the lives of queer and trans migrants, as well as the alternatives that different queer and trans migrants envision and for which they fight.
