New Book on Undocumented Immigrants and Higher Education
New from LFB Scholarly Publishing: Undocumented Immigrants and Higher Education: ¡Sí se puede! by Alejandra Rincón, Ph.D. , The issue of higher education for undocumented high school graduates has increasingly gained attention since 2001 as ten states have passed laws to allow these students access to college at in-state tuition rates. This book is about the long struggle by education advocates and immigrant students to broaden access to public colleges and universities nationwide. Specifically, it chronicles efforts to change discriminatory laws and regulations controlling access to higher education. By offering a context and an accurate presentation of the origins and implications of in-state tuition laws, readers can better understand this modern struggle for equal application of the law and access to higher education in the United States. As immigrants face increasing attacks by draconian governmental legislation and enforcement, they are also standing up for human and civil rights, and responding: ¡Sí se puede! (It can be done!). Please join us and help to get the word out to colleagues, classmates, coworkers and family, about this wonderful new book. From the author This book documents the history of the struggle to secure immigrant students' access to higher education. An accurate understanding of this movement for equal rights is vital for academics, advocates, policymakers, and for others seeking to understand and chronicle this aspect of life for the undocumented and the educational system in the United States.

I recommend this program (IPCP) to everyone planning to work in the field of immigration.
After completion of the program at UBC, I gained full confidence and a better understanding of immigration acts and regulations, building detailed files and communicating without any problem with Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), visa sections, and my clients around the globe.
The IPCP program was a very pleasurable and priceless experience for me to attend with experienced and dedicated admission staff, teaching assistants and instructors.
