ABSTRACT
An interview with American immigration historian Roger Daniels is presented. When asked about contemporary public opinion regarding U.S. immigration policies, he refers to the contradictory nature of such sentiments as Americans are generally proud of their immigrant ancestors. Other topics discussed include the history of immigration law, the history of exclusionary laws against specific race groups such as the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Law, and literacy requirements for immigration.
