Sahar F. Aziz: The Psychological Burdens of Immigrating to America


Sahar Aziz on Race and the Law Prof blog writes first hand on the topic of "The Psychological Burdens of Immigrating to America."  In a time of the harshest anti-immigrant presidential campaign rhetoric in recent history, Professor Aziz "felt it timely to address a topic rarely discussed when speaking of immigration to a foreign country: the psychological harms of leaving one’s family, friends, and comfort zone."  She reminds us that we should "acknowledge and understand the ways in which new immigrants experience psychological subordination that makes displacement from majority to minority status the highest price they pay in leaving their country of origin."
