Journalist Daniel Denvir explores nativism as an organizing principle of American politics - from the enduring mechanisms of exclusion dating back to the nation's origins as settler colonialist project, to the modern uses of anti-immigrant policies in service of capitalist and imperial profit, and against the interests of the working class on both sides of the border.

on the rise of anti-immigrant politics on the right and center, and his book All-American Nativism: How the Bipartisan War on Immigrants Explains Politics as We Know It from Verso Books.
