This article examines the political and spatial registers of struggles against exclusionary local immigration policies and for more welcoming policies in the Washington DC metropolitan area, one of the hotspots for both local anti-immigration policies and immigrant advocacy in the United States. It explains that, some actors and actants in the assemblage are actively involved in extra-local net-working, collaborating across jurisdictional boundaries—between central cities and inner-and outer-ring suburbs within the Washington DC metropolitan area and across the United States. The com-plexities of these contestations call into question post-political narratives of “proper” politics, un-derscoring the need for an empirically grounded critical theory of democracy
