"This book is about the effect of U.S. Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibilities Act (IIRIRA of 1996) and criminal deportation to Jamaica, the issues associated with deportees resettlement and re-integration, and increased crime and violence in Jamaica which the police and several policy-makers claimed deportees are responsible for. It also represents a dedicated attempt to bridge both lines of inquiry between increased criminal deportation and increased crime and violence in Jamaica, wherein criminal deportees are constantly being blamed for the high murder rate in the country.
Based on six years of studies, I find that there are two types of criminal deported migrants and over seven different categories of us and I write in details about the categories. A number of them are unreformed or dangerous and are involved in criminal activities, while the majority are law abiding citizens. Quite a few have tertiary degrees and meaningful skills and experiences and can contribute to the society, but they are highly marginalized. I write about the issues that we faced, the problems that some have caused, and how I was abducted or unlawfully arrested, wrongfully prosecuted, unlawfully convicted, sentenced to a term of imprisonment, and then wrongfully deported to Jamaica-even though I am a veteran of the US Army with a service-connected injury. A 'must read' edition."
