In the face of the worst refugee crisis since WWII, some communities have responded with #refugeeswelcome, while others have institutionalized the principle of “not in our backyard” with legal restrictions and criminalization of those who provide support to refugees. Professor Galya Ben-Arieh presents a constitutional ethnography that provides insight into the ways in which local communities operationalize legal rituals and invoke constitutional values and norms of what it means to be American in their response to refugee reception and integration. Space is limited.
