ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the series of enforcement efforts aimed at apprehending and detaining undocumented immigrants in the U.S. It examines the two recent initiatives, workplace and residential sweeps, which are aimed at apprehending undocumented immigrants and the emergence of family detention facilities designed to house families as they await for the conclusion of their immigration status. The author argues that the immigration initiatives created by the government only use family as an instrument for abjection. It discusses the future of immigrant families under the administration of the U.S. President Barack Obama.
