From EU immigration to the treatment of asylum seekers in the UK, hardly a day goes by without the public talking about the effects of immigration. We want to look at what it means for a state to differentiate people into citizens and foreigners and what it means for the people to be claimed as such. The state rules over its citizens in the interest of capital and nation. Based on this, we will argue that the policies on immigration and asylum reflect the state's demand against its own citizens, albeit with different consequences.
