Undocumented Immigrants

by Sara Howell

Part of a Series: The American Mosaic: Immigration Today.

"The act of immigration can be illegal, but no person can be illegal. " The sometimes-controversial topic of undocumented immigration is treated sensitively in this informative volume. Nearly twelve million undocumented immigrants currently live in the United States. What rights do they share with American citizens? How do they contribute economically and culturally to their adopted nation? Why do people choose to immigrate illegally? Clear, accessible, and well-organized text guides young readers through the complicated realities of undocumented immigration. Each spread covers a different topic, including deportation, attaining citizenship, and immigration policies. The book design features vibrant red and blue detail, and captioned color photographs humanize the issues at hand. Back matter contains a glossary, link to publisher-selected Web sites, and an index.
