Collision Course: The Strange Convergence of Affirmative Action and Immigration Policy in America
Hugh Davis Graham (au)
When the Civil Rights Act of 1964 & the Immigration & Naturaliz. Act of 1965 were passed, they were seen as triumphs of liberal reform. Yet today affirmative action (AA) is foundering in the great waves of immigration from Asia & Latin America, leading to direct competition for jobs, housing, educ., & govít. preference programs. Here, Graham explains how two such well-intended laws came into conflict with each other when employers, acting under AA plans, hired millions of new immigrants (IM) ushered in by the Immigration Act, while leaving high unemploy. among inner-city blacks. As the economy weakens & antiterrorist border controls tighten, the competition for jobs will intensify pressure on AA & invite new restrictions on IM.
