ABSTRACT
The article suggests how the U.S. can restrict immigration, as a way to avoid racism and prevent the nation's balkanization. The demand for a moratorium obscured the true position of the restrictionists. Peter Brimelow, formerly a senior editor of the periodical, led the restrictionist movement of the 1990s. Cultures and races overlap, and admitting Asians and Hispanics to America at the present rate will have cultural consequences because they are bearers of their cultures. But it is those consequences that concern the U.S., not race per se. The fixation on race has become more pronounced with the decline in the restrictionists' political influence.
