Abstract:     
Prof. Failinger’s article begins with stories of the Chinese Exclusion period and modern Arizona border immigration. Tracing Emmanuel Levinas’ argument about violence and totalization of the vulnerable Other as it is manifested in discriminatory legislation in these periods, she argues for a return to the Face-to-Face in deciding immigration requests for admission to the U.S. through a rubric of equitable guided discretion.
