Description

Sorry friends: eBook not available for Kindle download.

Migration is a natural, human act—seeking food, shelter, and comfortable environments is essential for survival. With the existence of national borders, migration becomes immigration—an intensely political issue.

A great book on immigration for teens. It covers what immigration is, historic immigration in the US, as well as modern topics. I think my favorite part was the dispelling of myths about immigration. Really well done and I think it would be eye-opening for teens.
