Essential: A timely and important contribution to discussions about how to handle the most pressing issues currently facing the world. Sager (philosophy, Portland State Univ.) draws on the concepts of freedom, equality, and distributive justice to push back against common arguments around restricting borders that center on self-determination, security, and cultural values. He not only makes a compelling case for more open borders but also emphasizes the moral responsibility to fight for the rights of migrants.
[Sager's] depiction of the global immigration structure as based on racism, perpetuating and creating inequalities along racial lines, forms a powerful and urgent element of the anti-racism movement that is taking place at this time.
