Immigration Songs!!!!!

Rathod Jayesh Rathod (American) shared with the ImmProf listserve a list of "Immigration Songs" that he compiled when teaching the Immigration Law survey course. He incorporated these songs into class, either by playing the song at the beginning of class (as students got seated) to introduce a topic, or as part of an in-class exercise.

How about 'Emigrante Latino' by Los Hermanos Flores? It's a song whose lyrics captures the sadness felt by today's immigrants in having to leave their home countries. Counterposed to the lyrics is the upbeat tempo--but that's typically Latino! It's a fabulous song.

How about Neil Diamond's "Coming to America."
His lawyers have refused to license the song to me for any price for immigration presentations. Amazing.

I have written a pro-immigration song called "Line Between The Lands" which is available on many stores, including iTUNES, Amazon, & MySpace - check it out ! ------ Greg Wilhelmi
