The Changing Face of Immigration in the United States

Integration of Immigrants into American Society is a timely study from the National Academies Press; it details how immigrants and the policies that decide their fate have changed over the years. Topics explored include legal status, socioeconomic and sociocultural concerns, health and access to care, political ideology, among others. Recommendations for future actions end this tome while relevant citations and data supplement the text. A valuable read especially given the tenor of discussions during this presidential election year. Two excellent sites to keep abreast on immigration are Pew Research Center: Immigration and Migration Policy Institute. Please also peruse this March 14, 2016 CRS report – U.S. Immigration Policy: Chart Book of Key Trends.
