  Annotation: This article discusses organizated crime and immigration in the United States.
Abstract: The United States has been the prime mover in the establishment of both the concept of organized crime and the use of the concept in its attempt to establish global hegemony, in which law enforcement became a little more than a front for a government-backed central casting agency, stereotyping both heroes and villains. This article offers an account of how the ‘Other’ has been used as prism for the construction of organized crime primarily in the United States and how this construction, as a franchise, has been exported on the international level and on heterogeneous criminal landscapes. Abstract published by arrangement with Taylor and Francis.
