“We desperately need to put aside false information about immigrants, to see them as we see ourselves with honesty and compassion. This book gives powerful meaning to the slogan ‘No Human Being is Illegal.’
I hope it will be widely read.”
—Howard Zinn

“In 2006, foreign nationals led the largest protests in the nation's history. As the immigrant rights movement grows in size and energy, we need quick facts and deep history. This encyclopedic book gives us both. Readers move in rapid fire from sanctuary and legalization to guestworker programs, raids and deportations. The argument is easy to follow, for families struggling to stay together and activists of all walks who are struggling to expose the issues.”
—Aarti Shahani, co-founder, Families for Freedom, http://familiesforfreedom.org

“Jane Guskin and David Wilson have written an excellent book about immigration politics, a very complex subject, in an accessible and provocative way. They use a question and answer format, which allows them to directly address some of the most heated issues in this national debate. They've done a great job of identifying these hot-button points, and go about undoing the stereotypes, misinformation and prejudice that paralyze rational thought about immigration policy. In the process, they break down complex sets of ideas into their component pieces, giving each one its own question. This book is a great reality check, a good teaching tool, and a powerful weapon against racism.”
—David Bacon, Photojournalist and trade unionist, author of Communities Without Borders: Images and Voices from the World of Migration http://dbacon.igc.org
