3 Books High School Students Should Consider To Learn More About Inqueities Immigrants Face

Immigrant inequities are a critical issue facing our society today. I’m on a journey to learn more especially after volunteering for a Korean-American community-focused nonprofit this past year. I’ve been asking around how I might learn more about this issue.

To help high school students learn more about the topic, here is a list of three books that have been recommended to me that explore the subject in detail.

1. The Line Becomes a River: Dispatches from the Border by Francisco Cantú – Cantú offers an intimate look at border control operations, providing valuable insight into the hardships many immigrants face.

2. The Distance Between Us by Reyna Grande – This memoir follows Grande’s journey as an undocumented immigrant, providing powerful insight into the trials and tribulations she encountered along the way.

3. Strangers in Their Own Land by Arlie Russell Hochschild – Hochschild examines why people living in areas with severe inequality often support policies that harm their own communities. Through her research, she provides a compelling case for why these issues need to be addressed urgently.

By reading these books, high school students should be able to gain a better understanding of how immigration laws affect immigrants directly and get an inside look into how these laws shape their lives and futures.

What other books or TED talks or YouTube videos do you suggest?
