Rate this:
Immigration is one of the most controversial and divisive topics in politics today. Full of rhetoric, labels, political spin, myths, mantras, and misinformation, the issue has split the GOP, silenced the Democrats, and frustrated the American public. How is anyone supposed to make sense of all the propaganda? In Immigration and the American Dream, Margaret Sands Orchowski cuts through the hype and discusses the facts of the issue-past, present, and future. Honest and direct, 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) mantras, 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.
