This chapter demonstrates other pathways to immigrant political incorporation and how every alternative entails trade-offs and sunk costs that constrain further strategic decisions. It begins by sketching out a working definition of the “political.” It then lays out an array of incorporative pathways, ranging from electoral politics to organizational mobilization and bureaucratic incorporation. Not all of these pathways are necessarily legal or even savory. Timing and sequencing of immigrant actors' arrival to a receiving context matter, with later arrivals constrained by the actions and choices of earlier arrivals.

Keywords:   immigrants, political inclusion, political incorporation, electoral politics, timing, organizational mobilization
