From a socio-historical analysis focused on the main immigration and deportation policies in the United States and Chile, it is possible to identify discourses and practices focused on specific migrant groups, strongly determined by their national origins and their ethnic and “racial” characteristics. This presentation focuses on the analysis of the main milestones of the immigrant deportation policy in the United States and Chile, having as an analytical axis the concept of “State Racism”. To do so, we will first delve into the definition of State racism, unraveling the concepts of racism and the national State; in order to subsequently carry out, through a comparative perspective, a brief overview of the main deportation actions and policies adopted by the states of both Chile and the US.
