While the United States remains a nation of immigrants, the path to citizenship is not an easy one—and in fact has become more difficult in recent years. In clear, readable language, this volume explains in detail every step an individual must take to obtain a nonimmigrant visa, an immigrant visa leading to permanent residency, or actual citizenship. This book is essential reading for anyone involved with immigration—whether for themselves, a relative, or an employee. Examples of common immigration forms for the individual and for families are included and a list is provided of the most important websites for immigration issues.

Generations ago, immigrants came to the U.S. from Europe and Africa in large numbers. Today they are arriving mainly from Latin America and Asia. Most are documented but many are not. While the federal and most state governments have done little beyond controlling borders and ports of entry to address pressing immigration issues, public officials and community organizations at the local level have been advancing commonsense, pragmatic solutions to accommodate the newest members of American society. This collection of essays provides a handbook for developing good county- and municipal-level immigrant services. The contributors cover a diverse range of trends, issues and practices, including immigration reform, language access, identification and driver's licensing, employment, education, voting, public safety and legal assistance.

The historic rise in international migration over the past thirty years has brought a tide of new immigrants to the United States from Asia, South America, and other parts of the globe. Their arrival has reverberated throughout American society, prompting an outpouring of scholarship on the causes and consequences of the new migrations. The Handbook of International Migration gathers the best of this scholarship in one volume to present a comprehensive overview of the state of immigration research in this country, bringing coherence and fresh insight to this fast growing field. The contributors to The Handbook of International Migration—a virtual who's who of immigration scholars—draw upon the best social science theory and demographic research to examine the effects and implications of immigration in the United States. The dramatic shift in the national background of today's immigrants away from primarily European roots has led many researchers to rethink traditional theories of assimilation,and has called into question the usefulness of making historical comparisons between today's immigrants and those of previous generations. Part I of the Handbook examines current theories of international migration, including the forces that motivate people to migrate, often at great financial and personal cost. Part II focuses on how immigrants are changed after their arrival, addressing such issues as adaptation, assimilation, pluralism, and socioeconomic mobility. Finally, Part III looks at the social, economic, and political effects of the surge of new immigrants on American society. Here the Handbook explores how the complex politics of immigration have become intertwined with economic perceptions and realities, racial and ethnic divisions,and international relations. A landmark compendium of richly nuanced investigations, The Handbook of International Migration will be the major reference work on recent immigration to this country and will enhance the development of a truly interdisciplinary field of international migration studies.

Few issues have provoked as much controversy over the last decade as illegal immigration. While some argue for the need to seal America's borders and withdraw social and governmental support for illegal migrants, others argue for humanitarian treatment--including legalization--for people who fill needs in American industry and agriculture and have left situations of economic hardship or political persecution. The study of illegal immigration confronts a broad range of migrants--from the familiar border crossers to those who enter illegally and overstay their visas, to unrecognized refugees who seek protection under U.S. asylum law. This book provides a comprehensive, up-to-date review of this volatile subject.

Back Cover Thomas Jefferson wrote “a well-informed electorate is a prerequisite to democracy.” The American Citizens’ Handbook’s mission is to bring that line of thinking to the forefront of the immigration arena. What started as a search for a questionable confirmation of a lone statistic ended after close to two years of research, being a candid conversation from a concerned citizen on inaccurate data with self-serving agendas. Inside this cover, you will discover startling information that brings to light that the new class of victim is the US citizen. You will see how immigrants, legal and illegal, use the additional child care credit to claim billions in fraudulent claims that there are credible statistics showing that there are more than 20,000,000 illegal immigrants in the US, with 60 percent of those having lived in the country for over a decade that the top 10 H-1B employers use the visa program to send American jobs offshore how the lack of assimilation interferes with our children’s education in the US how illegal immigrants that arrive at an early age are more likely to be incarcerated than those who arrive at later ages the impact that birth tourism plays in this country with over five hundred Chinese companies offering the service how immigration profoundly redistributes political power at the federal level the fact that sanctuary laws fall hardest on the backs of the American Citizens in that area. The American Citizens’ Handbook on Immigration shows how society is putting the citizens of this great country second. The content has been said to be articulate, factual, and informational. Thomas Jefferson would be proud.
