THE POLITICS OF IMMIGRATION

Questions and Answers

by Jane Guskin and David Wilson

"We desperately need to put aside false information about

immigrants, to see them as we see ourselves with honesty and

compassion. This book gives powerful meaning to the slogan 'No

Human Being is Illegal.' I hope it will be widely read."

- Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States

"As the immigrant rights movement grows in size and energy, we

need quick facts and deep history. This book gives us both."

- Aarti Shahani, co-director, Families for Freedom

"Guskin and Wilson have identified the hot-button points in the

national immigration debate, and have set out to undo the

stereotypes, misinformation and prejudice that paralyze rational

thought on the subject. This book is a great reality check, a

good teaching tool, and a powerful weapon against racism."

- David Bacon, author of Communities Without Borders: Images and

Voices from the World of Migration

As Congress debates immigration "reform," polls show the public

increasingly divided, with the immigration debate framed as a

choice between "deport them all" and "give everyone amnesty." But

dialogue is possible when we dig deeper. Why are people leaving

their homes? Why are they coming here? What is the impact of our

current enforcement policies? What kinds of alternatives exist?

Backed with a wide range of cited sources, The Politics of

Immigration tackles questions and concerns about immigration with

compelling arguments and hard facts, laid out in straightforward

language and an accessible question-and- answer format.

For immigrants and supporters, the book is an effective tool to

confront common myths and disinformation. For teachers, it

provides a useful framework on the current debate, and ample

opportunities for students to reach out and explore the

intersecting issues.

Those who believe immigrants steal jobs from citizens, drive down

wages, strain public services, and threaten our culture will find

such assumptions challenged here, while people who are undecided

about immigration will find the solid data and clear reasoning

they need to develop an informed opinion.
