Abstract

Alejandro Portes discusses the complex social, economic and cultural determinants of today’s second generation of immigrants to the United States of America. He warns that unless changes are made there is a strong likelihood that members of today’s second generation will join those at the bottom of society forming a new “’rainbow underclass’.
