Incomplete, but the arguments for immigration reform, though one-sided, are good. However, to use an example that is off topic but makes things clearer: if Russia wants Abkhazia independent of Georgia, then Georgia should say OK on condition Chechneya becomes independent of Russia. You know the answer here. It is never a one-way push where fairness is called for. Dual conditions need to be searched then the dialogue can work for all.
This book offers a solid debunking of the biggest myths about immigration, and is an invaluable resource in standing up to the nonsense of the Lou Dobbs crowd. My only criticisms are: (1) the writing style is a bit choppy and awkward and (2) some of the "answers" in the book aren't fleshed out enough. Overall, though, the book's positives strongly outweigh the negatives, and I highly recommend it.
Accessible and important information everyone should know
