Vast research on immigration lumps together native citizens' attitudes toward two different groups: the immigrant stock of non-naturalized resident aliens, and the immigrant flow , that is, the future arrival of foreigners seeking to enter and live in the country.

Yet because comparative research has been focused on measuring and explaining the multiple components of citi...
