Along with the civil rights and voting rights acts, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 is one of the most important bills of the civil rights era. The Act's political, legal, and demographic impact continues to be felt, yet its legacy is controversial. The 1965 Act was groundbreaking in eliminating the white America immigration policy in place since 1790, ending Asian exclusion, and limiting discrimination against Eastern European Catholics and Jews. At the same time, the Act discriminated against gay men and lesbians, tied refugee status to Cold War political interests, and shattered traditional patterns of Mexican migration, setting the stage for current immigration politics. Drawing from studies in law, political science, anthropology, and economics, this book will be an essential tool for any scholar or student interested in immigration law.

Book Description:

Along with the civil rights and voting rights acts, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 is one of the most important bills of the civil rights era. This book explores the law's enduring legacy through its elimination of racial quotas as well as restriction of longstanding Mexican immigration.

About the Author:

Gabriel J. Chin is a 'paper grandson', a descendant of an unauthorized migrant during Chinese Exclusion. Author of many articles on Asian American legal history, he is co-editor of Strange Neighbors: The Role of States in Immigration Policy (2014), addressing recent state immigration restrictions. As a professor at the University of California at Davis School of Law, he has worked with students to lobby the repeal of Jim Crow laws still on the books, including anti-Asian land laws in Kansas, New Mexico, and Wyoming.
