D'Amico referring to Foucault - I'm impressed!

I'm not.

If Foucault, D'Amico, or the author of the book he is putatively reviewing actually think that most Americans could ever be convinced that any moral code requires unregulated immigration, they a(we)re* all high on their own supply.

*See what I did there?

I see what you did FC. I in no way endorse "regulating" immigration. Immigration, or making every illegal immigrant legal, to me, seems like a solution to the United States' illegal immigration "social problem."
Here is why I am impressed with D'Amico: He referred to Foucault and illustrated that he has a cursory familiarity with Foucault's claims about discipline and punishment. The modal economist, I believe, has never even heard of Foucault.
I, also, think that you are correct that D'Amico does not tell prospective readers much about the book he reviewed. He was much more interested in making his own claims about crime and punishment.
