Summary

Questions surrounding immigration-illegal and otherwise-have been key issues on the campaign trail during recent elections cycles. Politicians and citizens all over the country continue to struggle with economic, social, political, and policy questions. In this important new book, authors Louis DeSipio and Rodolfo O. de la Garza present an accessible overview of U.S. immigration and an incisive examination of the current legislative and legal debates over immigration and settlement policies. Examining the relationship between minorities and immigrants, the authors explain how the public policy needs of immigrants are often confused with those of U.S.-born minorities. The book closes with the question: If the nation understood the kinds of demands immigrants legitimately make, would we change the contract between the state and the immigrant? US Immigrant and Immigration Policies in the Twenty-First Century: Making Americans, Remaking Americais a valuable textbook for undergraduate political science courses on immigration politics, policy, and law, ethnic and minority classes, civil rights courses, and classes on the politics of human rights.
