There is a growing clamor about our immigration “problem.” But what are the facts about immigration? What is pushing and pulling workers and families to leave their homeland and emigrate to the U.S.? Who benefits from rules that allow entrance by some workers and criminalize others? What do foreign-born and domestic workers have in common? How can we evaluate proposed immigration “reforms”?

"Economic Refugees: Immigration & the Growing Divide" provides information, analysis, and strategies for action to close the political and social divides that pit workers and communities against each other.
