Subject: SLS: The Meaning of American Citizenship

Hi Judy,

I confirmed this text in the law library
of U.C. Berkeley.  You could also submit
a FOIA request to INS for a copy of the book.
They might have to photocopy it for you,
from their archives, but it is a terrific
inspiration.  The author must have infiltrated
the government, no?  :)
