Immigration Struggles: An Annotated Bibliography

Abrego, Leisy. "Legitimacy, Social Identity, and the Mobilization of Law: The Effects of Assembly Bill 540 on Undocumented Students in California." Law & Social Inquiry 33.3 (2008): 709-734. Academic Search Premier. EBSCO. Web. 3 Apr. 2010.

This journal article was written by Leisy Abrego about the effects of AB 540 on undocumented students in California, which I found in EBSCO. The journal talks about how the AB 540 helps undocumented Latinos go to school. The journal is more for the public audience. The journal isn’t biases; it’s more into dept on how they students can go to school. It talks about how some illegal students get turn down from schools because of them being undocumented. But some schools do take undocumented students; the problem is that they’re going to have to pay out their pockets. They don’t qualify for any government support. Going to school, getting your Bachelors or Masters degree is not a problem. The problem is going to be when they have to get a job. How are they going to get a job, when they don’t have the access to a social security? Unlike other articles, this journal is focused more on undocumented Latinos education. I would use this article for my struggles with undocumented Latino students.

Ewers, Justin. "Immigration Reform Advocates Ready to Try Again." U.S. News & World Report 13 Feb. 2009, Nation & World: NewsBank. Web. 1 Apr. 2010.

This newspaper article is written by Justin Ewers about giving another try on the Immigration Reform which I found in NewsBank. The newspaper article is written for the public audience and for the Latino community. It talks about giving undocumented Latinos a chance to work and stay in this country. The article is not biases. In 2007, Immigration Reform was presented in the Capital Hill but it wasn’t passed. President Obama and other officials are looking into passing some kind of law for undocumented Latinos. There are many pros and cons about this reform passing. I believe if President Obama passes this reform law, better things will come to this country. There would be less identity thief and more licensed drivers in the United States. I would use some parts of this article for my final paper.

Gross, Daniel. "The New Dream Isn't American - Immigrants are deterred by the ailing economy and tougher border controls." Newsweek 26 May, 2008, U.S. Edition, Immigration: 30. NewsBank. Web. 1 Apr. 2010.

This newspaper article is written by Daniel Gross about how immigrants face economic problems and boarder controls. The article is written to the public audience, not for scholarly. It talks about how undocumented immigrants work hard and cross borders. The article is not biases, seems objective. Illegal immigrants have tougher enforcement and border control, a slow U.S. economy and impressive growth in development. In this article it explained some ideas on my topic on struggles with undocumented Latinos. This supports my topic because these ideas are some like the ones I need for my final paper.

Kullgren, Jeffrey T. "Restrictions on Undocumented Immigrants' Access to Health Services: The Public Health Implications of Welfare Reform." American Journal of Public Health 93.10 (2003): 1630-1633. Academic Search Premier. EBSCO. Web. 3 Apr. 2010.

This journal article was written y Jeffrey T. Kullgren about Immigrants having access to health services which I found in EBSCO. In 1996 they restricted many government, state, and local public funded services to undocumented Latinos. The article isn’t biases. That means they cut down on helping Latinos when getting sick. In 2000, they wanted to provide free health and give discounts to the ones in need. Now in 2010 President Obama has signed the Health Care Reform, so any can get health insurance. Back then undocumented Latinos couldn’t qualify for insurance because of their status. I would use some of this...
