A House Still Divided

Professor Huntington, in her Response, A House Still Divided, is sympathetic to Cox’s desire to discard the traditional dichotomy between rules that govern the selection and regulation of immigrants. She identifies, however, two points of resistance to destabilizing the categories. Both because “there is some difference between selection and regulation,” and, more importantly, there is “political utility” in distinguishing between the two, Huntington argues that academics “need to be forthright about the power the distinction retains.”
