The Restriction/Open Door Debate

March 2008
Visions & Divisions;2008, p1
The author reflects on the need for greater and tighter immigration restrictions in the U.S. He cites the proposed immigration restrictions of college professor Francis A. Walker whom stated that his proposal is likely to evoke a high degree of incredulity, arising from the traditions of the country. The author also observes the lack of optimism for the said restrictions as reflected in Thomas Bailey Aldrich's poem "Unguarded Gates."
