Why Does Immigration Divide America? Public Finance and Political Opposition to Open Borders

Author

Listed:
  • Hanson, Gordon H.

Abstract

Immigration is an issue capable of dividing otherwise like-minded people. Identify a group whose members tend to agree on political issues--liberals, conservatives, isolationists, internationalists, environmentalists, free marketers--and one will tend to find that within the group there is no strong majority opinion about US immigration policy. This important new book examines how public finance shapes individual preferences towards immigration policy in the United States.
