Immigration in America's Future: Social Science Findings & the Policy Debate

by

Immigration in America's Future: Social Science Findings & the Policy Debate Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Immigration policy is one of the most contentious issues facing the United States today. The bitter national debate over Californias Proposition 187, the influx of Cuban refugees into Miami, and the continuous, often illegal, crossings over the Mexican border into Texas and California are just a few of the episodes that have created a furor on local, state, and federal levels.In this timely and informative book, David Heer invites readers to examine the data and the trends of immigration to the United States and, ultimately, make up their own minds about what our national immigration policy ought to be. He demonstrates how social science findings, together with a conscious recognition of our individual values, are necessary for the formation of a balanced policy for immigration.Some of the the nations collective values that may be affected by U.S. immigration policy are the standard of living in this country, the preservation of existing American culture, ethnic and class conflict, and the power of the United States in international affairs. Heer examines the impact of these values on immigration policy and traces the history of U.S. immigration and immigration law and patterns of immigration to the United States. Finally, he offers proposals for change to existing immigration policy.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 225-236) and index.
