Summary
"Immigration and the American Dream outlines the history of U.S. Immigration, explains the big issues behind the emotions, challenges the often heard (but rarely questioned) myths and partisan labeling, objectively reports on the politics behind Congressional immigration reform initiatives, and forewarns readers about the possible future efforts on immigration. The book is filled with accessible anecdotes, sources where readers can get more information, and recent quotes from prominent individuals and newspapers."--Jacket
