Opposing Viewpoints on Immigration

Today's convocation featured three immigrants who shared their stories and their efforts toward passing legislation that would allow undocumented immigrants to continue their education in the United States. Two had come to the United States as elementary school-aged children and graduated from high school in Massachusetts. The two bills that they are trying to get passed are the Dream Act and Massachusetts House Bill 1175, an act to allow undocumented immigrants the right to attend college in state at resident tuition rates. They said that the cost of higher education was prohibitive to most undocumented immigrants.
The books in our display give both sides of the immigration issue. You can look in our catalog for more books and electronic resources to help explain the immigration issues. Electronic resources can be accessed on campus or at home through passwords students can find in our library Moodle courses.
