Progress toward Creating the Printed Book

    As of October 2014, the basic pages have been set for
Orderly Immigration: Creating a New America.
Additional chapters can be added as needed.
The on-line Bibliography has been started.
And it will continue to expand
even after the first edition of Orderly Immigration is published on paper.
What other books on similar themes should be reviewed?
As of October 2014, there are 214 pages.
This total will be increased when the Bibliography is added.
Once the first 100 readers have given their comments, reactions, & suggestions
(see seminar below), the printed book will be published.
Even after the printed and bound book is available
(now projected for 2018),
all of the contents will remain available free-of-charge on the Internet.

    In January 2017, the new chapter 15 was added---deportation priorities.
This adds about 10 pages to the book.




Facebook Seminar Discussing Orderly Immigration

    The next step toward publishing this book
is gathering the first 100 readers into an on-line seminar,
where they will read and comment on that chapters one-by-one.
Here is the complete description of this seminar:
http://www.tc.umn.edu/~parkx032/ED-IMM.html.

    These readers will comment on both the content and the style of the book.
And they might have lively disagreement
with the proposals included in Orderly Immigration.
This could lead to modifications of the chapters as they now stand.
And additional chapters might be added.
