Based on original research, the seminar links the problems immigrants face in integrating in new communities across eight states in the US. The seminar will focus on evaluating for the audience how public policy makers and communities have aimed to welcome immigrants through public policy, on the one hand, and resist immigrant integration on the other. Specific attention will be paid to recent conservative policies (focused on education) and politics (linked to the Tea Party) as they relate to the rising population of immigrants using county-level data.
