W3: Immigration

This week we continue sharpening our skills related to summarizing published works, and examining different points of view. The topic for this week’s discussion forum is immigration. Immigration (both legal and illegal) is an ever-growing world issue. Viewpoints on immigration vary greatly. Every day there are plenty of good, hard-working, and otherwise law abiding people attempting to cross American borders. The people are, in most instances, looking for a better way to support their families, to be safe in their communities, and to have better opportunities for themselves and for their children.  In your analysis, explore alternative viewpoints regarding immigration.
