Entry Denied: Controlling Sexuality at the Border – Eithne Luibhéid

Lesbians, prostitutes, women likely to have sex across racial lines, “brought to the United States for immoral purposes,” or “arriving in a state of pregnancy”–national threats, one and all. Since the late nineteenth century, immigrant women’s sexuality has been viewed as a threat to national security, to be contained through strict border-monitoring practices. By scrutinizing this policy, its origins, and its application, Eithne Luibhéid shows how the U.S. border became a site not just for controlling female sexuality but also for contesting, constructing, and renegotiating sexual identity. This innovative work clearly links sexuality-based immigration exclusion to a dominant nationalism premised on sexual, gender, racial, and class hierarchies.
