AbstractCurrent U.S. immigration policy coupled with public anti-immigrant sentiments have appeared to set up oppressive conditions for noncitizens. Iris Young's "Five Face of Oppression" provides a framework useful for identifying conditions of oppression for citizens. However, in this thesis I argue that she is missing an important face of oppression, noncitizenship status. Through applying noncitizen's experiences to Young’s faces and my additional face, their oppression can be identified, and the structures and systems in our society that facilitate such oppression can be found as well.
