The purpose of the diversity immigrant visa lottery is to encourage legal immigration from countries other than the major sending countries of current immigrants to the U.S. Current law weights the allocation of immigrant visas heavily toward aliens with close family in the U.S. and, to a lesser extent, toward aliens who meet particular employment needs. The diversity immigrant category was added to the Immigration and Nationality Act to stimulate żnew seedż immigration (i.e., to foster new, more varied migration from other parts of the world).

Debates on immigrant integration often center on “national models of integration,” a concept that reflects the desire of both researchers and policy makers to find common ground. This book challenges the idea that there has ever been a coherent or consistent Dutch model of integration and asserts that though Dutch society has long been seen as exemplary for its multiculturalism—and argues that the incorporation of migrants remains one of the country’s most pressing social and political concerns. In addition to an analysis of how immigration is framed and reframed through diverse dialog

Foreign-born people represent a large and growing share of the U.S. population. The native- and foreign-born populations differ in a variety of characteristics, such as age, fertility, educational attainment, occupation, earnings, and income. Among the foreign born, naturalized citizens differ from non-citizens, and people from some parts of the world differ from people from other parts on most of those characteristics. In November 2004, a report was published titled "A Description of the Immigrant Population," which included data through 2003. This report provides an update with information t
