Immigration Reform is an in-depth discussion of immigration reform in America. The author demystifies this polarizing subject by posing questions about the ethical and political quandaries still presented by race and ethnicity after two and a half centuries of American independence. The book highlights commonly held myths about immigration and explains which issues America needs to address in order to achieve comprehensive reform. The National Chamber Foundation, a non-profit affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, picked this book's original edition as one of its top ten 'Books that Drive the Debate' for 2009.
