Argues that government immigration policies have favored refugees from left-wing rather than right-wing regimes

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From Library Journal:

The plight of refugees has, to America's credit, been reserved a special status amidst myriad immigration laws and regulations. But, as the authors point out, special legislation and executive fiat have tended to favor those fleeing communist repression, while those seeking refuge from rightist dictatorships and natural disasters have received short shrift. If acceptance in the United States embarrasses the Soviets, chances of legal entry increase dramatically. Those fleeing Soviet aggression have receive favored treatment, while less than 0.5 percent of Guatemalan applicants and 2.5 percent of El Salvadorans, for example, are admitted legally. Loescher and Scanlan believe the fate of refugees is too often at the whim of world politics. Their endnotes are almost too detailed; otherwise, highly recommended.
