This chapter focuses on the realities created by the securitization of U.S. immigration law. Deported 1.5-generation Salvadorans have found themselves essentially exiled from the homes and families that they knew in the United States. In El Salvador, they encounter a somewhat alien country where many are stigmatized and harassed. By recounting the experiences of deported youth, this chapter considers the ways that U.S. immigration enforcement practices reshape national landscapes.
