By Nicholas Laham | Go to book overview

Notes

PREFACE
1.
For an informative analysis of the pivotal role the economy and defense played as issues which determined the outcome of the 1980 presidential election and shaped the domestic policy agenda of the Reagan administration during its first months in office, see John W. Sloan, The Reagan Effect: Economics and Presidential Leadership ( Lawrence: University Press of Kansas, 1999).
2.
For a thorough and comprehensive history of immigration to the United States, from the founding of the American republic to the present, see Vernon M. Briggs Jr., Mass Immigration and the National Interest ( Armonk, N.Y.: M. E. Sharpe, 1996).
3.
For a perceptive examination of Congress's strong support for the high levels of legal immigration experienced since 1965, and its equally strong opposition to illegal immigration and backing for measures to deter further illegal immigration to the United States, see Kenneth K. Lee, Huddled Masses, Muddled Laws: Why Contemporary Immigration Policy Fails to Reflect Public Opinion ( Westport, Conn.: Praeger Publishers, 1998).
4.
For the text of Carter's recommendations to Congress to address the problem of illegal immigration, see Jimmy Carter, Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States 1977 ( Washington, D.C.: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1978), pp. 1415-21.
5.
For an insightful assessment of the politics of immigration reform since 1981, based upon interviews with the chairmen of the Senate and House immigration subcommittees in the 104th Congress--Alan K. Simpson of Wyoming and Lamar Smith of Texas--as well as key lobbyists on opposing sides of the immigration debate, see Lee, Huddled Masses, Muddled Laws.
