This paper aims to analyze Chang-rae Lee`s debut novel, Native Speaker, by using Giorgio Agamben`s analysis of sovereignty in relation to bare life, homo sacer. Homo sacer is a being on the threshold of nature and civilization, which the sovereignty draws a demarcation of citizenship on and derives the absolute power from. In reading of Native Speaker, we can realize that the status of the immigrants in the United States is not much better off than that of homo sacer, especially so in cases of the ``undocumented`` immigrants. In the large part of the novel, the English language is presented as a medium through which the power of the native English speakers flows. However, when the story of John Kwang is delivered, the readers can face the sovereign power which confirms its absoluteness. John Kwang ambitiously attempts to represent the unrepresentable being and transgress the boundary of small business within which Asian Americans are recognized as ``model citizens.`` The appearance of the INS instead of the Tax Office at the end of novel and John Kwang`s final exile illustrate the confirmation of sovereign power by banning homo sacer.
