AbstractTensions, conflicts, and community instability associated with heightened immigration - especially of nonwhite immigrant groups - threaten to balkanize America. This article highlights the root causes of the growing opposition to both immigrants and U.S. immigration policy - the nativist backlash, presents a typology of the community-level conflicts that have arisen as a consequence of heightened immigration - legal and illegal - to the United States over the last 30 years, and outlines the conditions under which diversity can be brought to the forefront as one of society's strengths.
