Part I focuses on the history of immigration and anti-immigration sentiments in the three countries. Part II discusses governing laws in the three countries that have received the most attention because of their extreme impact on immigrants. Part III analyzes these laws, focusing on their legal ramifications, discriminatory effects on immigrants, and economic harm. Finally, Part IV explains why these laws reflect an extreme approach to immigration and raise serious legal questions if they are not modified in the future.
