Mass Asylum and Human Rights in American Foreign Policy
John A. Scanlan and G.D. LOESCHER examine the emerging restrictive U.S. policy toward Western Hemisphere refugees and contend that it is not likely to reduce immigration pressure in the long run. They conclude that a foreign policy that deals more directly with the problem of persecution abroad will be necessary if refugee flow to the United States is to be controlled.
