Immigration Reform: A Reference Handbook

Author(s): LeMay, Michael;
Contributors: LeMay, Michael;
Abstract:

This volume presents a comprehensive, unbiased, and easily accessible review of U.S. immigration reform, and explains why reform efforts have resulted in the current state of political deadlock over the issue in the United States Congress.


• Provides readers with a succinct and unbiased examination of the political complexities involved in attempts to reform legal and unauthorized immigration to the United States

• Enables readers to understand why immigration reform so often ends in stalemate and why comprehensive immigration reform is so difficult to achieve

• Demonstrates why every major immigration reform law has unanticipated consequences that may resolve one set of problems only to engender a new set of problems

• Shows the adverse economic impact of efforts to tighten control procedures for the issuing of visas to the United States
