1: Thesis: Debate over the requirements of citizenship and the rights of immigrants is deeply rooted in two contrasting traditions one of which sees citizenship as a function of action and the other of which sees it as a function of culture. I. Definition of the citizen/Rights of the citizen a. Tocqueville: Civil associations (Function of Action) i. Rights are necessary under this model ii. Participation/civil associations 1. Participate in politics, particularly through voting 2. Being well informed about policy issues 3. Holding opinions on politics based on public good iii. Religion b. Cultural View: Must be culturally similar to other Americans to be a citizen i. No rights are necessary (lack of involvement) ii. Speak the same language iii. Believe similar things (religion, politics, etc) iv. Ex) A Chinese person may not be able to be a citizen if their culture is too different v. Ex) A Jewish person’s religion may be too different because a Christian ethic acted as an underlying value in America c. Ideologies (represented in Tichenor’s four views of citizenship) (Cosmopolatians, National Egalitarians, Free-Market, Classic) i. Cosmopolitans are rooted in Tocqueville’s definition (action) ii. Classic Exclusionist are rooted in cultural definition (culture) iii. Free-Market Expansionist/Nationalist Egalitarians (mixture of action and culture) d. Cradle Theory (When it doesn’t apply to action or culture) i. Look to a nations origins to determine future policies ii. National Values 1. Asylum- Giving refuge or exceptions a. Ex) Potato Famine 2.
