America's Immigration Dilemma   

This course will examine one of the most fraught topics in American politics today: immigration. Despite the U.S.'s long history of acceptance and openness to foreign immigration, since 2000 concerns have spiked about the number and ethnicity of those being admitted. Throughout American history, immigration policy has evolved and reacted to often dramatic shifts in American society. Particular attention will be given to immigration laws in the 1920s, Lyndon Johnson’s landmark Immigration Act of 1965, and recent developments in problems and policies along U.S. borders.
