TEST TUBE AMERICA: Immigration

with Michael Barone, Peter Skerryvia Uncommon Knowledge
Tuesday, January 22, 2002

In 1965, Congress voted to change the laws that had restricted immigration into the United States for more than four decades. The Immigration Act of 1965 resulted in a wave of increased immigration that continues today. How do recent immigrant groups compare with those of the last great wave of immigration a century ago? Are they successfully integrating into American culture or threatening America's cultural stability? Should immigration once again be restricted, or should we concern ourselves with helping immigrants assimilate when they arrive?

Or is America divided along economic rather than cultural lines? Just how fundamental are these differences, and what impact will they have on the American political landscape?

Saturday, October 30, 1999

Visiting America in the 1830s, Alexis de Tocqueville encountered a nation that, although rude and in some ways backward, was nevertheless egalitarian, individualistic, decentralized, religious, property loving—and lightly governed. One hundred and sixty years later, Tocqueville’s rude, backward democracy has become the model for all the world. By Hoover media fellow Michael Barone.
