Immigration in New York

Synopsis

"In this comprehensive and lively study (the second trait a most welcome change from most demographic analyses), Bogen, Director of the Office of Immigrant Affairs, provides a summary of the legislative history of immigration to the city and extensive quantitative data on the new arrivals. She also discusses the character and quality of human and legal services for immigrants and refugees, reviews monetary and social costs and benefits, sets forth a series of recommendations for social policy, and ends with a thoughtful Paean to the Lady, the one with the lamp held high beside the Golden Door. In addition to its general contents, Bogen's book includes a most useful glossary of terms and acronyms so that readers, too, may know what it means to adjust one's status, understand the oxymoron called conditional permanent residence, take courses in ESL, and look to a volag for assistance."
