Who is entering this "Golden Door?" Who is kept out? Why is it so difficult to make major changes in current immigration policy?
Immigration, the phenomenon that helped build America and also caused bitter debates, is once again fanning the flames of controversy. This time the majority of newcomers are not from Europe but from third world nations. Their sheer numbers, the cost of caring for refugees, the entrance of many undocumented aliens, and the difficulty for officials to control the situation have thrust immigration into the national spotlight. This second edition of Still the Golden Door completely updates the established work on immigration and ethnic history, demonstrating the postwar shift from European to third world immigrants, and includes all the important legislature and events of the last five years, especially the 1990 immigration act.
