Mexican Illegal Aliens: A Mexican American Perspective. By Rafael D. Canul, Ph.D. ISBN: 0-915745-62-3. $22.95.
Professor Canul, in this substantial, well-documented and impressive socio-political and economic analysis, focuses on the difficult and challenging motives and experiences of Mexicans illegals who have settled in the U.S. since 1920â€™s. He illustrates how, despite racial conflicts, the controversial influx of Mexicans have adapted and contributed to American society.
He describes a rail-road like protection often extended to the border-crossers by the established Mexican American community, who witnesses with pain, empathy, and disgust their mistreatment and exploitation of the illegal Mexican immigrants. He provides a unique Mexican American perspective on this controversial issue of illegal immigration.
