Perspectives on immigration

An article in today's Times spotlights generational differences in U.S. perspectives toward immigration. The post-1965 immigration law was certainly a departure from previous statute, and the article describes how birth cohorts appear to have been affected differently by it.

I particularly enjoyed the blurb about Spanish language segments on Sesame Street. I remember those well from the late 1970s!
