W. James Antle III:

Assimilation is often casually invoked as the magic bullet that will solve all the problems brought about by continuous mass immigration. Indeed, the integration of newcomers through Americanization campaigns has been the key to this country's immigration successes. But today assimilation takes a back seat to other considerations in formulating immigration policy...

The U.S. immigration system must get back to making Americans. This doesn't mean that new Americans must reject their heritage... But the persistence of old habits does show that Americanization must be a deliberate policy, not something left to chance.
