This paper is the second part of a trilogy which explores immigration practices in the United States and Europe. In the first part of the trilogy (Strait, 2010), the sources which inform and shape the immigration debate were explored. The four major sources of information revealed included the news media, government agencies, nongovernment organizations (NGOs), and scholarly journals. Part One of the Trilogy concluded with the identification of four major stakeholders who were represented within these information sources. They were host populations, immigrant citizens, private enterprise, and undocumented immigrants. This article examines the ethical dilemmas that result when a single source of information or a single stakeholder is allowed to dominate the immigration debate. Specifically, part two of the Trilogy examines four emerging ethical dilemmas. These emerging ethical dilemmas include taxation of undocumented immigrants, expedited citizenship through military service, immigrant profiling, and the repatriation of undocumented immigrants to high risk environments. The final article in the Trilogy will present a proposal for a new immigration model which synthesizes information from the four data sources, incorporates the concerns of the major stakeholders, and advances immigration reform.
