Description - Immigration's New Frontiers by Tova Andrea Wang
Before 1995, about three-fourths of the nation's immigrants settled in just six
states: California, Texas, Illinois, Florida, New York, and New Jersey. In the decade since, however, immigrants increasingly have bypassed those traditional gateway states in favor of new frontiers, and twenty-two other states have experienced extremely rapid growth in their immigrant populations.
Immigration's New Frontiers examines the experiences of North Carolina, Iowa,
Georgia, Minnesota, and Nebraska. The book provides readers with a better
understanding of the enormous difficulties caused by the absence of a functioning federal system. In many cases, states and localities are attempting to resolve within their jurisdictions problems-mostly concerning
undocumented immigration - that can only be adequately addressed at the national level.
