Ahilan Arulanantham

The definitive account of U.S. refugee policy and the motivations driving it from World War II until the mid-1980s. It remains as pertinent today as when it was written. Although the book was published long before the Obama Administration’s dismal mistreatment of Central American refugees in the last few years, the book explains that immoral policy as though it were written yesterday.
