Follow-up to last night’s mtg (8/10/15) on immigration politics

I seldom do follow-up post anymore.  But, this article explains what social psychology experiments reveal about the motives of the 30% of Americans that oppose all immigration. (Note that my research showed that number at about 20%).  The articles discusses racism versus cultural anxiety, how much “illegal” versus “legal” matters in people’s attitudes, and a lot more.

The article can be found here.
