Wk 8: Basics of American Citizenship & Reform

3/16 Theorizing Assimilation ppt


This week we look at the basics of US immigration rights and analyze the political forces that led to the replacement of the national origins system of immigration with the race-neutral preferences system of the 1965 Reform, which is the basis for modern day immigration policy. How did the 1965 Reform change immigration patterns in the U.S.? Do you believe that the categories set up the by the 1965 Reform (The Family, Employees, Refugees/Asylees, Nonimmigrants, Investors, Diversity) are the right ones?
