Abstract:

This study of post-World War II immigration to the United States shows how Third World immigrants--unwelcome in 1940--were encouraged by changes in American policies to come to the United States. Reimer examines why these policies changed, who the newcomers are, why they seek a new life in America, and where they are locating. He deals with the flow of Cubans, Haitians seeking asylum, the refugees from political turmoil in Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America, the constant stream of Mexicans across the Southern border, and the public reaction and policies toward the newcomers. Other topics include: the Immigration Act of 1965, the implications of the Simpson-Mazzoli bill, and the probable future trends in immigration policy. ISBN 0-231-05770-9 : $25.00.
