In this timely and clear-eyed look at immigration in the United States, award-winning journalist Jorge Ramos shows that reform is desperately neededand long overdue. A Country for Allillustrates how, throughout its history, the United States' ability to turn immigrants into citizens has strengthened its economy and enriched its culture. But today, millions of productive, law-abiding workers, drawn to the U.S. by the inexorable pull of freedom and economic opportunity, are forced to work in the shadows, with no hope for equal rights as American citizens. Meanwhile the US government spends billions in unsuccessful efforts to stem the flow of this tide of immigration. The choice we face, Ramos argues, is between a pragmatic approach that deals with the reality of immigration, or the continuation of a cruel, capricious, and ineffective system that stands in opposition to our national principles.
