The Racial Demography of Immigration Controls

  • James Hampshire

Abstract

The development of [immigration] controls over this period was not concerned with a need to slow or prevent the growth of the population as a whole through immigration. It was concerned primarily with a perceived need to slow or prevent the further growth through immigration of particular ethnic minority communities within the population, and took place as it did precisely because many of those who had taken advantage of the opportunities available had been black, from the New Commonwealth.1
