W hat are the implications of Walzer’s view of citizenship for his views on immigration?  Does  Carens have a counter to this argument? Walzer argues that “immigration and emigration are morally assymetrical (40).” Why might this  be so? Why does Walzer find guestworker programs objectionable? As only some people choose to migrate, migration is a process that involves “self­selection”.   What does this imply about the difference between migrants and stayers?  Why might some  people migrate and other people stay? Hatton and Williamson write that “the biggest challenge is to explain why emigration rates were  often lowest from the poorest countries”, Why did emigration rates so often rise from low levels  of successful economic development took place at home? What pull factors, produced by developed societies, might trigger migration from developing  society?  What is the origin of those pull factors? What does the concept of “migrant selectivity” mean?  What factors influence migrant selectivity and how might migrant selectivity change over time. How do migrant networks lead to the persistence of migration? What is the difference between the vertical and the horizontal dimensions of policy­making? How and why do international factors influence immigration policy­making? What is the  difference between security concerns and “soft power”? And how is that relevant to immigration  policy­making? Why, according to Tichenor, do experts exercise influence? What makes immigration coalitions (“pro” and “anti) so unstable and difficult to assemble? What are the sources of stasis in immigration policy­making? How does the Hagen piece illustrate how and why migrant networks channel opportunities to  newcomers?  Why did male and female migrants have access to different types of opportunities? What is the relevance of the structural characteristics of the migrants’ networks: in particular,  the extent of contacts among associates or network members; the degree of overlap in contacts  (so that neighbors are coworkers are coethnics….or not); strong versus weak ties? According to Hagen, how did differences in migrant networks affect the ways in which male and female migrants were able to respond to opportunities to gain legal status? Does Hernandez­Leon consider the Monterrey­Houston international circuit as an instance of a  transnational community?  Why or why not? According to Hernandez­Leon, what are the factors that impede person­to­person cross­border  contact?
