Irregular migrants complicate the limits of citizenship and stretch the parameters of political belonging. constructed from refugees, asylum seekers, "illegal" exertions migrants, and stateless people, this staff of migrants occupies new sovereign areas that generate new subjectivities. Investigating the position of abnormal migrants within the transformation of citizenship, Anne McNevin argues that abnormal prestige is an immanent (rather than aberrant) situation of worldwide capitalism, shaped by way of the fast-tracked tactics of globalization.

McNevin casts abnormal migrants as greater than mere sufferers of sovereign strength, shuttled from one situation to the subsequent. Incorporating examples from the us, Australia, and France, she indicates how migrants reject their place as "illegal" outsiders and make claims at the groups within which they dwell and paintings. For those migrants, outsider prestige operates as either a method of subjectification and as a website of lively resistance, forcing observers to reconsider the enactment of citizenship. McNevin connects abnormal migrant activism to the advanced rescaling of the neoliberal country. States more and more prioritize transnational marketplace kin that disrupt the spatial context for citizenship. while, states police their borders in ways in which reinvigorate territorial identities. Mapping the wide dynamics of political belonging in a neoliberal period, McNevin offers helpful perception into the social and spatial transformation of citizenship, sovereignty, and power.
