Few issues have provoked as much controversy over the last decade as illegal immigration. While some argue for the need to seal America's borders and withdraw social and governmental support for illegal migrants, others argue for humanitarian treatment--including legalization--for people who fill needs in American industry and agriculture and have left situations of economic hardship or political persecution. The study of illegal immigration confronts a broad range of migrants--from the familiar border crossers to those who enter illegally and overstay their visas, to unrecognized refugees who seek protection under U.S. asylum law. This book provides a comprehensive, up-to-date review of this volatile subject.

From Welcomed Exiles to Illegal Immigrants

Cuban Migration to the U.S., 1959-1995

Cuban migration to the United States has altered the face of American politics and demographics. From Welcomed Exiles to Illegal Immigrants, the only scholarly study available of this Cuban migration, analyzes its political dynamics and unique character. In this revised and expanded edition of his 1988 book With Open Arms, Masud-Piloto here extends the discussion with an examination of the Bush and Clinton administrations' responses to recent events in Cuba. Masud-Piloto, an expert on Cuban and Caribbean migrations and a Cuban emigre himself, draws on previously unavailable documents, as well as his first-hand experience, to describe American attempts to destabilize the Castro government by draining Cuba of vitally needed teachers, physicians, and technicians, and to embarrass the revolution by exposing the flight of Cuba's citizens to a "free" country. Masud-Piloto's examination of the Haitian and Central American refugee crises of the past two decades provides a useful comparative perspective.

ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION: THE CONSEQUENCE OF MISPLACED TRUST ******** A Layman’s Close, Hard Look at The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 Have you ever asked yourself some of these questions? Why has our government failed in its duty to protect our border with Mexico? Why has our government permitted the use of our ports of entry by millions of aliens who, once safely through the gates, disappear into the crowd and become illegal immigrants like those who steal across the border? Why is it that for the past 25 years our government has been seemingly quite incapable of preventing employers in our country from hiring illegal immigrants when that was the specific means by which that same government promised us an end to illegal immigration? Why must we have illegal immigration in the first place? What’s been the cause of it? If you’ve wondered about that and would like to know the truth about these matters, then you will find it here in this book. Answers that are clearly stated, fact-based and so logical as to be altogether unavoidable. Answers that, in addition, are almost certain to surprise you, since they are not the answers to these questions that we hear from our columnists or from our talking heads and certainly not from our politicians. The fact of illegal immigration stands in stark contrast with our country’s policies and its laws. In explaining how we came to be so afflicted with it, this book will open up a whole new world for you, a world of which you’ve likely been largely oblivious. Above all, this is an honest book, a book that you can trust, something you’ll discover for yourself—and by no later than in its first chapter.

All rights reserved. America must offer swift/humane immigration reform Collaborative efforts by both political parties An educated reform will improve public/social morale One nation under God indivisible, with liberty/ justice for all AMERICAN MONEY and the Flow of Illegal Immigration on the Rio Grande is a book that will engage the reader in risky, real life adventures of an immigrant daughter who, upon returning years later to the ranch that raised her, encountered exhausted, precarious illegal immigrants on the perilous Chihuahuan desert trails of Far West Texas, in search of their own American dream, laced with la plata Americana.

Timely topic from an unusual perspective. The only bad part, it was too short and left me wanting to know more! ~ Monnie Smith ([email protected]) ANOTHER POINT OF VIEW Reform Illegal Immigration Through Education Illegal Immigration today is not what it was in the 1970's. It is an out of control human migration machine that must be dealt with in a swift yet humane manner. We the People' of the United States of America must quit stalling on this issue. Illegal immigration is not a love Republicans/hate Democrats issue'- it is an AMERICAN ISSUE. Together, with a pencil, a prayer and a law book in our hands, we should be able to resolve this issue. This is America after all; we have the technology, the know-how and the numbers (Uh I think right?) so what is our real problem?

This book will inform and educate the general public on illegal immigration and its effects not only on those directly involved in the process, but on the general population as well. Writing about it in the context of its impact on contemporary society seems to be the best way to do it. How the different media view it, the degree to which the public has been influenced to view the question of immigration in the United States, Europe and elsewhere are included in the issues discussed, analyzed and elaborated on, as we attempt to look at the process of immigration, legal and illegal, from the standpoint of its impact on society as a whole. If some of the stories seem to be familiar, it is because the people are real, and the things they talk about actually happened. They are essentially true stories told by people who want to share their real-life experiences. Only in a few instances have names been changed to protect the identities of those involved.

Illegal immigration has been near the top of the political agendas of the member states of the Council of Europe for almost two decades. They are worried about the scale of the problem and frightened that it might exacerbate existing social tensions. This report, which was discussed at the 7th conference of European Ministers responsible for Migration Affairs in Helsinki in September 2002, surveys the problems and offers some recommendations on future policy. After defining illegal immigration, it discusses the organised traffic in human beings and the measures to control and deter settlement. It then examines the particular problems of the enlargement of the EU and Community policy before looking at the underlying demographic and economic trends and their effect on the labour market. The recommendations focus on a desire for a transparent system, which harmonises asylum and immigration policy and allows a positive regulation of labour migration.

The recent level of illegal immigration to the United States has increased debates about the effect of these immigrants on the cost of public services, and states have begun to enact policies that limit the public services available to illegal immigrants. The central issues are how many illegal immigrants reside in particular local areas and states and their effect on public expenditures and revenues and the economy in general. The Local Fiscal Effects of Illegal Immigration workshop selected six studies for analysis. The six case studies focused on one specific aspect of the complex question of the demographic, economic, and social effects of immigration: the net public services costs of illegal immigrants to selected geographical regions.

The Politics of Immigration Reform

View: 2848

While the United States cherishes its identity as a nation of immigrants, the country’s immigration policies are historically characterized by cycles of openness and xenophobia. Outbursts of anti-immigrant sentiment among political leaders and in the broader public are fueled by a debate over who is worthy of being considered for full incorporation into the nation, and who is incapable of assimilating and taking on the characteristics and responsibilities associated with being an American. In Illegal, Alien, or Immigrant, Lina Newton carefully dissects the political debates over contemporary immigration reform. Beginning with a close look at the disputes of the 1980s and 1990s, she reveals how a shift in legislator’s portrayals of illegal immigrants—from positive to overwhelmingly negative—facilitated the introduction and passing of controversial reforms. Newton’s analysis reveals how rival descriptions of immigrant groups and the flattering or disparaging myths that surround them define, shape, and can ultimately determine fights over immigration policy. Her pathbreaking findings will shed new light on the current political battles, their likely outcomes, and where to go from here.

Illegal immigration has been a long-standing problem. In Feb. 1994, the Attorney General announced a broad, five-part strategy to strengthen enforcement of the nation's immigration laws. This report focuses on one of those strategies -- to deter illegal entry along the southwest border. It addresses: what the strategy calls for; actions taken to implement the strategy along the SW border; whether available data confirm the strategy's hypotheses, with respect to expected initial results from the strategy's implementation; & the types of indicators that would be needed to evaluate the strategy to deter illegal entry along the SW border.
