Summary
An influx of illegal aliens crossing U.S. borders has become the white-hot flash point igniting intense debate over immigration, a deeply contested public policy issue since the founding of our nation. The current debate focuses on undocumented immigrants, many of whom enter our major cities and, in the minds of some critics, wreak havoc with depleted public resources, job availability, social services, law enforcement, race relations, and domestic politics in general. - Back cover
