As part of the H-Net 25th Anniversary Crossroads commemoration, over the past year the editors at H-Net have been looking through the logs of the various networks from back in the listserv era (prior to 2014), and publishing a sort of "greatest hits" compilation of threads they found to be especially active. Today they contacted the editors of H-NJ to let us know our network has been added to the Mining the Logs collection.

I'm not sure if I would classify any of the suggestions below as "pro" or "con" but the following pieces provoked excellent classroom discussion when I taught an upper-level undergrad U.S. immigration history course last spring. To be frank, I have not found ANY pro-immigration-restriction scholarship to be credible/in-good-faith. Most of these that I have encountered seem to have some kind of racist agenda at their core. I fear that you may be setting up your students for a straw man argument, but that's perhaps my own bias.
