Philosophy of Race and the Ethics of Immigration

Mendoza, José Jorge. “Philosophy of Race and the Ethics of Immigration.” In The Routledge Companion to the Philosophy of Race, edited by Paul C. Taylor, Linda Alcoff, and Luvell Anderson, 507-19. New York, NY: Routledge, 2018.

In this chapter I attempt to provide a general overview of the philosophical literature on immigration from both an ethics of immigration and philosophy of race perspective. I then try to make the case that putting these two literatures into conversation would be fruitful. In particular, that it could provide an underappreciated argument for limiting the discretion states are normally thought to enjoy with respect to immigration.
