The Migration Policy Institute released a fact sheet in 2016, stating that children born in the U.S. of a parent or parents who are undocumented immigrants, are placed at a severe disadvantage in life. This data was collected from 5.1 million children who are living with an unauthorized immigrant parent. Researchers found that these children are likely not to be enrolled in preschool, are likely to be held in a socioeconomic level that keeps them from developing and gaining access to resources, and are likely to fail in English proficiency that is necessary to move ahead in life. Place on top of that, the stress that their parent might be deported at any minute. These children are at risk, without a doubt. While U.S. policies on immigration and border control are hotly debated, this volume makes sure that we don't forget what's really at stake, the future of our young. Your readers are given the full breadth of perspectives on this topic, through eyewitness accounts, governmental views, scientific analysis, and newspaper accounts. Important details are pulled out from the text and presented in italicized font so that readers can track the facts, and refer to them for research and report writing. Most important of all, by reading balanced and well-researched entries, students will be able to form intelligent opinions on this pressing issue.
