Taller Puertorriqueño is proud to present Robert C. McGreevey on his book, Borderline Citizens: The United States, Puerto Rico, and the Politics of Colonial Migration. In this book, McGreevey dissects the intersection of U.S. colonial power and Puerto Rican migration by examining the confrontations in the early decades of the twentieth century between colonial migrants seeking work and citizenship and the policing of the borders of the U.S. economy and polity. Borderline Citizens deftly shows the dynamic and contested meaning of American citizenship.
