This is the first book-length examination of immigrant admissions from a feminist philosophical perspective. Much philosophical work on immigration is founded on an outdated conception of immigrants and the causes of migration. This is based on the model of the pre-World War II European migrant to North America escaping political tyranny, fleeing famine or hoping to claim 'unsettled' land. Higgins draws on empirical evidence to show that the world has changed, and reasons for migration have changed too. So we need to create new moral principles for deciding which immigrants should be admitted. Rather than suggesting one absolute solution, Higgins argues that a unique set of immigration policies will be just for each country. He concludes with concrete recommendations for policymaking. It draws on empirical data on trends, patterns and causes of contemporary global migration. It is the most thorough, up-to-date examination of existing philosophical work on justice in admissions. It responds the thought of other political philosophers including John Rawls, Thomas Pogge and Michael Walzer. It includes chapters on nationalism, cosmopolitanism and policy.

Immigration Justice contains an assortment of virtues. It offers a terrific overview of key positions in contemporary immigration philosophy. Higgins's picture of immigration justice is certainly innovative; he gives a circumscribed defense of closed borders that aims to respond to the needs of the most disadvantaged as opposed to the philosophically shaky claims of prescriptive nationalism. The PDP [Priority of Disadvantage Principle] is not only philosophically rich but also potentially useful for crafting a range of forward-looking immigration policies ... Immigration Justice may be the only book-length philosophical treatment of structural immigration justice, which makes it, in my view, a must-read for immigration philosophers working from the subfields of Latina/o and feminist philosophy."-- Amy Reed-Sandoval, University of Texas at El Paso, Hypatia Reviews Online
