Promotional Information

Charting the history of U.S. immigration policy and public reaction to newcomers from the Puritan colonists to World War II refugees, Unwelcome Strangers uncovers the heated arguments of the anti-immigration forces: environmental groups that warn against the consequences of overpopulation, economic concerns that immigrants take jobs away from Americans, and assimilationist fears that newcomers-especially from Latin America, and Asia-threaten American culture.
