ABSTRACT

Beginning in the early 1990s, Latino immigrants began arriving in areas of the United States previously unaccustomed to their presence. Subsequent backlash has included anti-immigrant legislation affecting both “documented” and “undocumented” Latinos. Focusing on one such instance in a rural community located in southeast Georgia, the present ethnographic case study explores what happens when a poultry processing plant recruits a second immigrant group as a source of cheap labor. Starting in 2006, dozens of Korean immigrants began working at Claxton Poultry in Evans, County Georgia. This study looks at the factors influencing the Koreans’ decisions to immigrate to Georgia, the local community’s reaction to their arrival, and the implications for education in the area.
