In January, 2018, then-President Donald Trump derided the idea of protecting immigrants from what he referred to as “shithole countries.” This talk will examine the immigration policy context in which this term was uttered, analyze how the term was invoked in litigation challenging the Trump administration, and then consider what the term tells us about relationships between waste, racism, and immigration.
