Immigration 101: A Primer on Immigration and the Need for Reform
March 28, 2012
For previous generations, immigration was a topic confined to history class. But in the last thirty years, changes in federal immigration policy have created an unprecedented rise in the number of immigrants admitted to this country every year. Under this new legislative system, immigration has changed from a topic in history textbooks to an issue in today’s newspapers.
As this new era of mass immigration continues, more and more communities — and the people who live in them — are coming to realize the enormous effects of immigration on their lives. To help you understand the issue, we at the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) have prepared this publication, Immigration 101: A Primer on Immigration and the Need for Reform.
