Throughout his presidency, John F. Kennedy was passionate about the issue of immigration reform. He believed that America is a nation of people who value both tradition and the exploration of new frontiers, people who deserve the freedom to build better lives for themselves in their adopted homeland. This modern edition of his posthumously published, timeless work—with a new introduction by Senator Edward M. Kennedy and a foreword by Abraham H. Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League—offers the late president's inspiring suggestions for immigration policy and presents a chronology of the main events in the history of immigration in America. As continued debates on immigration engulf the nation, this paean to the importance of immigrants to our nation's prominence and success is as timely as ever.

In 2012, President Obama deferred the deportation of qualified undocumented youth with his policy of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals forever changing the lives of the approximately five million DREAMers currently in the United States. Formerly illegal, a generation of Latino youth have begun to build new lives based on their newfound legitimacy. In this book, the first to examine the lives of DREAMers in the wake of Obama s deferred action policy, the authors relay the real-life stories of more than 100 DREAMers from four states. They assess the life circumstances in which undocumented Latino youth find themselves, the racializing effects generated by current immigration public discourse, and the permanent impact of this policy environment on DREAMers in America."

Immigration has always been part of the fabric of America's history and its future. However, the emphasis on high-skilled workers-today's foreign graduates at US universities with advanced degrees in science, technology, engineering, and math-is a fairly new phenomenon. The effects of "reverse brain drain" are becoming increasingly common, as professionals have begun taking knowledge and skills they've learned in America back to their home countries. Policymakers are realizing that foreign students are not only a major pipeline to innovators, but are also the catalysts behind the growth of new ideas and capital. In An Immigrant's Guide to Making It in America, Virgilia Kaur Pruthi reveals why this is the best time in modern US history for young immigrants to begin making their mark by highlighting the stories of a diverse set of those who've made it in America. Filled with practical advice on how to navigate the immigration system and tip for adjusting to US culture and understanding the visa process, the book gives readers the knowledge they need to succeed. An Immigrant's Guide to Making It in America presents a complicated process in an accessible format and is useful for the recently immigrated as it is for those long in the United States, looking for inspiration in the stories of their new peers. "I wrote this book for those looking to understand what it takes to succeed in America," Kaur Pruthi writes. "It is meant to follow you through your time as a student, a job-seeker, a family-starter, and a hopeful candidate for a green card and citizenship. It also tells the stories of immigrants who came to America, each motivated by unique aspirations. I aim to demystify the current immigration terminology while sharing tips on how to succeed in America from those who have been through the process." In chapters that detail the various issues for immigrants and naturalized citizens to understand Kaur Pruthi covers such topic as: The Current State looks at the evolution of immigration in America and takes a look at some of the hard statistics that shape our nation's diversity and education system. The People highlights the stories of more than thirty-five immigrants who hail from more than thirty countries and possess an extremely diverse set of professional backgrounds. They share their most honest advice and their stories are divided into the most common traits immigrants exude, including the bridging the gap between two cultures, getting comfortable with networking and building relationships, being open to the unknown, setting clear goals in life and remaining focused, and being confident of their own willpower and forward-thinking despite any barriers. The Skills lists the necessary skills people should be aware of and utilize in order to grow and succeed in any profession. The Real Answers addresses the most frequently asked questions posed by immigrants when moving, working, and continuing a life in America. The States details the demographics, trends toward immigrants and employment outlook of all fifty states. Resources highlights organizations in America that are doing incredible work for immigrants that individuals coming to this country should feel comfortable in approaching if in need while The Glossary is meant to translate the bureaucratic terminology, from A-Number to Visa Waiver, it's your portable dictionary to immigration. "I would love for my readers to take apart this book by extracting the information that is most important to them at a certain stage in life," Kaur Pruthi writes. "My aim is to make information about immigration and visas more accessible and clear without getting blindsided by politics. I hope that what you learn about the immigration system in this book will help you stay positive, patient, and courageous throughout your journey in the United States."

Immigration divides our globalizing world like no other issue. We are swamped by illegal immigrants and infiltrated by terrorists, our jobs stolen, our welfare system abused, our way of life destroyed--or so we are told. At a time when National Guard units are deployed alongside vigilante Minutemen on the U.S.-Mexico border, where the death toll in the past decade now exceeds 9/11's, Philippe Legrain has written the first book about immigration that looks beyond the headlines. Why are ever-rising numbers of people from poor countries arriving in the United States, Europe, and Australia? Can we keep them out? Should we even be trying? Combining compelling firsthand reporting from around the world, incisive socioeconomic analysis, and a broad understanding of what's at stake politically and culturally, Immigrants is a passionate but lucid book. In our open world, more people will inevitably move across borders, Legrain says--and we should generally welcome them. They do the jobs we can't or won't do--and their diversity enriches us all. Left and Right, free marketeers and campaigners for global justice, enlightened patriots--all should rally behind the cause of freer migration, because They need Us and We need Them.

An essential toolkit for all progressives- helping them to respond to the current sustained right-wing criticism of US domestic and foreign policy "The game is begun," Rush Limbaugh said, the day after Barack Obama won the presidency; and he was right. The clash of views on US domestic and foreign policy is, if anything, even more intense now than it was before the change of leadership in Washington. Right-wing media figures and Republican politicians regularly regale us with conservative criticisms of the realignment of policy and politics now underway. Even more than in 2008, now is the time for liberals to answer back, to counter those criticisms by both recognizing their content and locating their weaknesses. In the great clash of parties and philosophies that will shape the next American century, an informed citizenry will require more accurate information, ideas, and arguments than right-wing radio characteristically provides, and the market is wide open for a book that engages with both the worst and the best of the Republican case. Answering Back is that book. Answering Back intends to lift the quality of political discourse in the United States by bringing together the best conservative and the best liberal arguments on the eight key policy issues now in contention between the parties: trickledown economics and the role of public spending, the desirability of welfare reform, the future of social security, the establishment of health care for all, the possibility of comprehensive immigration control, religious issues and the social agenda, the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the causes of the financial meltdown. Each chapter begins with a brief introduction, followed by conservative views and a point-by-point progressive response. Each stage of each argument is labeled for easy memorization, and the language used is deliberately jargon free, to make the material as accessible as possible. The sources of both conservative and progressive arguments (and their supporting evidence) are cited to open the door to further research. Answering Back is a completely revised and expanded version of A Liberal Tookit, intially published by Praeger in 2007. This new version is a handbook of arguments, data, and sources that present today's key policy debates in an even-handed and accessible manner. This will be an essential tool for anyone interested in policy reform, party politics, and American politics. It is written in a manner that is, at one and the same time, scholarly, useful, accessible, and fun!
