So many times I have wished to challenge the position of those tight-fisted angry people who want 12 million immigrants deported immediately and a huge fence built along both our borders. However, I never had the arguments at my fingertips to counter their charges that immigrants use up our resources, take US jobs, and give nothing in return. This book makes it easy to understand how immigration improves our country and could contribute to our future if we only treated immigrants as potential contributors to our national wealth and power. Right now, businesses need poor immigrants one down in order to exploit them, but Chomsky points to a better world in which all workers, including Americans, could work for a fairer economic model here in the US.
