Ethnic Studies 135AC - Contemporary U.S Immigration

Instructor: Victoria Robinson 
Semester: Fall 2015 

Professor Victoria Robinson's 'Contemporary U.S. Immigration' course (Ethnic Studies 135) covers the topic of immigration in the United States, debunking common myths about immigration, revealing the truth about immigration, and following the history of immigration to present day. One notable subject in the discussion of present-day immigration is the program that President Obama has recently created: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

The DACA program "defers removal action against" certain undocumented immigrants; it gives temporary protection. However, many eligible immigrants are unaware of the program or the application process. Robinson's undergraduate students created infographics in both English and Spanish in order to simplify and explain the process and guide undocumented immigrants in the process of applying for DACA.
