Abstract

To attack the current immigration policies, Trump borrowed largely from the assumption that the current system is not a meritocracy, bringing in unworthy immigrants. Reflecting on the heavy influence from her mother, her journey, and experiences that led to her present life as a “legal alien” studying and working predominantly in the American higher education system, the author questioned the assumptions behind the idea of worthiness, deservingness, and responsibility. Anchored from post-colonialism theories, the authored outlined the challenges and potentials for those with similar immigration status and educational privilege.
