Immigration and the Remaking of Urban America

(p.308) Chapter 9 Conclusion
Strangers at the Gates

Roger Waldinger

University of California Press

This concluding chapter considers the question of whether the urban fates of immigrants matter or not. This is discussed in three parts, starting with the urban dimension. The chapter shows that today's immigrants are people who accidentally settled down in the nation's largest urban regions. It then addresses the urban or ethnic effects, before examining the compositional factors. The next section provides a survey of the intellectual context in the Miami situation, and then refines the results of the different important observations that were made in the previous chapters. The chapter ends with some conclusions on urban America and the future of immigrants and immigration.

Keywords:   urban fates, urban dimension, immigrants, urban effects, ethnic effects, compositional factors, Miami situation, immigration
