Summary
In 1996, powerful anti-immigrant forces in Newt Gingrich's 104th Congress worked hard to pass the most restrictive immigration law in decades. The new law has changed virtually every aspect of immigration policy, including the rules for political and religious refugees. However, the law is not as harsh as the chairmen of the immigration committees would have wanted. A fascinating case story of the legislative process and the author's experiences as a public interest lobbyist, "A Well-Founded Fear" tells how a coalition of human rights and refugee organizations fought to preserve the rights of refugees and asylum seekers. A vital contribution to the relation between human rights and immigration policy Nationally known author
