ABSTRACT
The article discusses an essay by Nora Faires which focuses on the symbolism of crossing borders and the history of human migrations into and out of the U.S. The author explores the reasons why immigrants of all nationalities sought refuge in America, explains why enslaved African Americans had no national identity during the 19th century, and analyzes the history of the U.S. Constitution's Fourteenth Amendment. She discusses human rights, birthright citizenship, and what it means to be stateless.
