Admissions Decisions: Should Immigration Be Restricted?
McGraw-Hill Higher Education, Aug 1, 1994 - Social Science - 52 pages
In 1993, when Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman was arrested for the bombing of the World Trade Center, and the GOLDEN VENTURE -- a smuggling ship containing 300 Chinese illegal emigrants -- ran aground on Long Island, the issue of immigration vaulted to the top of America's public agenda. Anxieties about the flood of immigrants that might arrive on our shores has prompted calls for new restrictions, and not just on political asylum. This latest book pressing questions facing politicians and voters right now: How many emigrants should be admitted? Of what nations and races? On what basis should we make those decisions? How should we enforce them? This book is intended as a framework for public discussion, a tool to help participants consider alternative points of view and courses of action.
