Illegal Aliens

Illegal Aliens

by Daniel Patrick Moynihan

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up-An up-to-date, evenhanded look at the subject. Hauser provides a brief history of the U.S. policies that have alternately encouraged and prohibited immigration. He then identifies illegal aliens: who they are, why and how they came here, and the government's response to them. One example: the Bracero program, which lasted from 1942-1964, recruited 4 million Mexican farmworkers to work in U.S. fields. Its cessation helped fuel a massive wave of illegal Mexican immigrants to the U.S. in the 1960s. While the discussion is generally clear, the writing is dry and, at times, long-winded. For best results, pair this thorough treatment with Charles Cozic's Illegal Immigration (Greenhaven, 1996), which has an excellent collection of essays that represent the diverse range of viewpoints on this issue.-Marilyn Taniguchi, Santa Monica Public Library, CA
