(p.133) Conclusion
Defectives in the Land

Douglas C. Baynton

University of Chicago Press

The conclusion evaluates the impact of restrictive laws on disabled persons: those who attempted to immigrate to the United States, those who never made the attempt for fear that they would be turned back, and American citizens who were affected by public knowledge of a set of laws and a highly visible screening process that cast them as unworthy of citizenship. It discusses the difficulty of determining how many persons were affected. It provides an epilogue by considering changes in the law since the 1920s, the visa system, and the persistence of aspects of immigration law that discriminate against people with disabilities.
