Irregular Migration provides a detailed account of post-Soviet illegal migration to the United States, focusing in particular on Central Asian and Georgian migrants. The book explores the reality of post-Soviet migration where the mostly well-educated former professionals end up in low-wage unskilled jobs as domestic workers, child care givers, and construction workers, sometimes in exploitative labor situations.
