ABSTRACT
Focuses on the immigration policy of the United States, and the resultant problems of an ineffective method of dealing immigrants. View that employment levels, domestic political cohesion, national resources, and the foreign public opinion about the U.S. are affected by U.S. immigration policy; Even the thought of tightening our borders and limiting the flow of immigrants has been repugnant to most liberals and many conservatives; One may be charitable and welcoming, yet we must view the overall situation in a broader context; Average amount of illegal immigrants entering the U.S. yearly; Immigration as part of American history.
