Political scientist and social activist Armando Navarro takes a hard look at four hundred years of immigration into the territories that now form the United States, paying particular attention to the ways in which immigrants have been received. The book provides a political, historical, and theoretical examination of the laws, personalities, organizations, events, and demographics that have shaped four centuries of immigration and led to the widespread social crisis that today divides citizens, non-citizens, regions, and political parties.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Navarro's lifetime activist experience in Chicano/Latino right movements enlivens the text with rare insight, personal reflections, and primary source material from his own meeting notes. Recommended. * CHOICE, November 2009 *
Armando Navarro has written a most needed and valuable study of the historical origins of Mexican migration to the United States and its continuing importance. This is a must-read for both concerned citizens and policy makers. -- Mario T. Garcia, University of California at Santa Barbara; author of Desert Immigrants: The Mexicans of El Paso, 1880-1920
Navarro skillfully captures the tensions caused by the changing America....The book's greatest value is its encyclopedic quality. It will be reference by scholars of Chicano/a studies and the growing field of immigration studies. * Western Historical Quarterly, Fall 2010 *
