Just Immigration

Growing up in Chile gave Mark Amstutz a unique perspective on international affairs and a deep desire to make his mark on the field. In his younger days, he dreamed of becoming a diplomat, and though his career took a more academic turn, he became something perhaps even more influential: a teacher of diplomats. In 1980, Amstutz founded the political science department at Wheaton College, where he has passed on his love and knowledge of international relations to hundreds of student who have gone on to serve, at home and abroad, in public affairs.

In his new book Just Immigration, Amstutz trains his expertise on one of the most complex and contentious issues in US politics. The only thing anyone seems to agree on in the immigration debate is that the system is broken. Amstutz’s book explores that system and its strengths and weaknesses, and it outlines a “two kingdoms” approach to the issue that is solidly grounded in Christian political thought.

Amstutz, who still teaches at Wheaton as a professor of political science, has written five previous books, including International Ethics, now in its fourth edition. He has also directed numerous off-campus programs in South America, Cuba, and Europe, and he served as a reserve naval attaché for more than a decade, retiring as a Commander from the U.S. Naval Reserve in 1993.
