Summary:
Why do legislators in Congress do what they do when it comes to voting on immigration policy? In 'The Politics of Immigration', Tom K. Wong argues that contemporary immigration politics is defined by three core features: the entrenchment of partisan divides over the issue of immigration, demographic changes that are reshaping the electorate, and how these changes are creating new opportunities to define what it means to be an American in a period of unprecedented national origins, racial and ethnic, and cultural diversity.
