65% Say Those Who Hire Illegal Immigrants Bigger Problem Than Immigrants Themselves
Rasmussen Reports, June 1, 2011
http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/current_events/immigration/65_say_those_who_hire_illegal_immigrants_bigger_problem_than_immigrants_themselves

Highlights:

* Sixty-six percent (66%) of voters favor strict government sanctions against employees who hire illegal immigrants, while 51% support sanctions against those who rent or sell property to those who are in this country illegally. This is consistent with surveys for years.

* Voters in earlier surveys have expressed more anger at the federal government for failing to adequately deal with illegal immigration than with the illegal immigrants themselves. In a June 2008 survey, 83% of those angry about immigration directed their anger at the federal government, while only 12% pointed towards the immigrants.

* Fifty-nine percent (59%) of voters favor a cutoff of all federal funding to cities that give sanctuary to illegal immigrants, and 61% believe a child born in the United States to a woman who is here illegally should not automatically become a U.S. citizen.

Mexico and its Diaspora in the United States: Policies of Emigration since 1848
By Alexandra Delano

Cambridge University Press, 304 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 1107011264, $28.32
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1107011264/centerforimmigra

Book Description: In the past two decades, changes in the Mexican government's policies toward the 30 million Mexican migrants living in the United States highlight the importance of the Mexican diaspora in both countries given its size, its economic power, and its growing political participation across borders. This work examines how the Mexican government's assessment of the possibilities and consequences of implementing certain emigration policies from 1848 to 2010 has been tied to changes in the bilateral relationship, which remains a key factor in Mexico's current development of strategies and policies in relation to migrants in the United States. Understanding this dynamic gives an insight into the stated and unstated objectives of Mexico's recent activism in defending migrants' rights and engaging the diaspora, the continuing linkage between Mexican migration policies and shifts in the U.S.-Mexico relationship, and the limits and possibilities for expanding!
shared mechanisms for the management of migration within the NAFTA framework.

Immigrants in Hoboken: One-Way Ticket, 1845-1985 (NJ)
By Christina A. Ziegler-McPherson

The History Press, 192 pp.

Paperback, ISBN: 1609491637, $15.59
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1609491637/centerforimmigra

Book Description: Since peoples from around the globe began to come to America, Hoboken has always been a popular destination for immigrants. People migrated from Ireland, Germany, Italy, Russia, Puerto Rico and other countries to the city, hoping to find opportunity and prosperity for themselves and their families in America. Using Hoboken as a point of entry, many ultimately chose to remain in the Mile Square City. As they struggled to establish themselves, immigrants clashed with one another and with native-born Hobokenites as they influenced the city's politics, economics, religions and customs. Author Christina A. Ziegler-McPherson explores their struggles and the complicated conflicts that have influenced the ethnic and cultural environments of this New Jersey city.

Translating Pain: Immigrant Suffering in Literature and Culture
By Madelaine Hron

University of Toronto Press, 320 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 080209919X, $88.38, 300 pp.
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/080209919X/centerforimmigra

Paperback, ISBN: 1442612193, $29.95
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1442612193/centerforimmigra

Kindle, ASIN: B00551IQCI, $16.47, 320 pp.

Book Description: In the post-Cold War, post-9/11 era, the immigrant experience has changed dramatically. Despite the recent successes of immigrant and world literatures, there has been little scholarship on how the hardships of immigration are conveyed in immigrant narratives. Translating Pain fills this gap by examining literature from Muslim North Africa, the Caribbean, and Eastern Europe to reveal the representation of immigrant suffering in fiction.

Applying immigrant psychology to literary analysis, Madelaine Hron examines the ways in which different forms of physical and psychological pain are expressed in a wide variety of texts. She juxtaposes post-colonial and post-communist concerns about immigration, and contrasts Muslim world views with those of Caribbean creolité and post-Cold War ethics. Demonstrating how pain is translated into literature, she explores the ways in which it also shapes narrative, culture, history, and politics. A compelling and accessible study, Translating Pain is a groundbreaking work of literary and postcolonial studies.

Somalis in Maine: Crossing Cultural Currents
By Kimberly A. Huisman, Mazie Hough, Kristin M. Langellie, and Carol Nordstrom Toner

North Atlantic Books, 400 pp.

Paperback, ISBN: 1556439261, $18.45
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1556439261/centerforimmigra

Book Description: Lewiston, a mill town of about thirty-six thousand people, is the second-largest city in Maine. It is also home to some three thousand Somali refugees. After initially being resettled in larger cities elsewhere, Somalis began to arrive in Lewiston by the dozens, then the hundreds, after hearing stories of Maine’s attractions through family networks. Today, cross-cultural interactions are reshaping the identities of Somalis—and adding new chapters to the immigrant history of Maine.

Somalis in Maine offers a kaleidoscope of voices that situate the story of Somalis’ migration to Lewiston within a larger cultural narrative. Combining academic analysis with refugees’ personal stories, this anthology includes reflections on leaving Somalia, the experiences of Somali youth in U.S. schools, the reasons for Somali secondary migration to Lewiston, the employment of many Lewiston Somalis at Maine icon L. L. Bean, and community dialogues with white Mainers. Somalis in Maine seeks to counter stereotypes of refugees as being socially dependent and unable to assimilate, to convey the richness and diversity of Somali culture, and to contribute to a greater understanding of the intertwined futures of Somalis and Americans.

A Nation of Immigrants: Readings in Canadian History, 1840s-1960s
By Paula Draper, Franca Iacovetta, and Robert Ventresca

University of Toronto Press, 512 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0802004660, $110.81
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0802004660/centerforimmigra

Paperback, ISBN: 0802074820, $38.95
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0802074820/centerforimmigra

Kindle, ASIN: B00551KOAK, $31.16

Book Description: This collection brings together a wide array of writings on Canadian immigrant history, including many highly regarded, influential essays. Though most of the chapters have been previously published, the editors have also commissioned original contributions on understudied topics in the field. The readings highlight the social history of immigrants, their pre-migration traditions as well as migration strategies and Canadian experiences, their work and family worlds, and their political, cultural, and community lives. They explore the public display of ethno-religious rituals, race riots, and union protests; the quasi-private worlds of all-male boarding-houses and of female domestics toiling in isolated workplaces; and the intrusive power that government and even well-intentioned social reformers have wielded over immigrants deemed dangerous or otherwise in need of supervision. Organized partly chronologically and largely by theme, the topical sec!
tions will offer students a glimpse
into Canada's complex immigrant past. In order to facilitate classroom discussion, each section contains an introduction that contextualizes the readings and raises some questions for debate. A Nation of Immigrants will be useful both in specialized courses in Canadian immigration history and in courses on broader themes in Canadian history.
