“A must-read for anyone who wants to understand immigration in the US.”
—Eva Longoria, actress, businesswoman, producer, and philanthropist

“An indispensable guide to the current debate on immigration. If you are at all uncertain about how to deal with anti-immigrant arguments, you will find Chomsky’s book a perfect response. She makes her points with clarity and uses unassailable evidence while offering constructive short- and long-term solutions.”
—Howard Zinn, author of You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train

“[Chomsky] not only demolishes virtually every myth about immigrants and immigration to the US, but also offers policymakers and activists solutions for tackling many of the issues created by globalization and an immigration policy grounded in falsehoods, and in so doing destroys the greatest myth of all: that nothing can be done.”
—Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Freedom Dreams

“Chomsky’s book provides us all with a much-needed sense of history and justice—and injustice—that must be included as we struggle for fair and humane immigration policies.”
—Catherine Tactaquin, executive director, National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights
