"A strong and well-written work that makes an important contribution to migration literature. For anyone interested in the modern history of Central American immigration, this is a must-read."—Jacqueline Hagan, author of Deciding to Be Legal

"An important book with very direct policy implications. García provides a wealth of information for anyone with an interest in refugee migration, NGOs, and policy, as well as contemporary history of Central America."—Cecilia Menjívar, author of Fragmented Ties: Salvadoran Immigrant Networks in America

"Garcia has tackled a complex and controversial topic and has produced a balanced, sensitive and incisive analysis. While most politicians and too many scholars continue to view immigration and refugee policy as unilateral issues that are ultimately decided by individual nation-states, Garcia's comparison of the evolution of the Central American refugee question in Canada, the United States, and Mexico demonstrates in vivid detail the many ways labor and refugee flows have always been truly integrated, hemispheric social phenomena. With the publication of this richly detailed and nuanced study, Garcia will continue to burnish her reputation as one of the top interpreters of Latino history in the United States."—David G. Gutierrez, author of Walls and Mirrors: Mexican Americans, Mexican Immigrants, and The Politics of Ethnicity
