Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The United States was founded as, and has remained, a land of immigrants, but immigration has always proved a complex issue for the country. Today, America's immigration policy is surrounded by controversy. While some Americans appreciate the cultural and intellectual contributions of new citizens, others fear the country does not have the resources to support a continuous influx of immigrants. There is concern about the cost and danger of illegal immigration, the economic strain of legal immigration, and the question of whether to make English the official language of the United States. This second edition of "Immigration Policy" has been updated to cover new controversies and include up-to-date statistics on this perennially controversial issue.
