Immigration Books of the Year
Looking for a gift for an immigration buddy? (I know its late but oh well.). This year saw the publication of a number of great immigration books:
Check out Pursuing Citizenship in the Enforcement Era by the ImmigrationProf Blog's very own Ming Hsu Chen. The Stanford University Press synopsis: "Pursuing Citizenship in the Enforcement Era provides readers with the everyday perspectives of immigrants on what it is like to try to integrate into American society during a time when immigration policy is focused on enforcement and exclusion."
Perchance to Dream by Michael A. Olivas. Professor Olivas was 2010 Immigration Professor of the Year. As described by the publisher: "Perchance to DREAM is the first comprehensive history of the DREAM Act, which made its initial congressional appearance in 2001, and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), the discretionary program established by President Obama in 2012 out of Congressional failure to enact comprehensive immigration reform."
See Part 2 tomorow.
