The remarkable ethnic diversity of the United States is the result of the many generations of immigrants who have settled here. Many people now living in America have parents or grandparents who came from other places; many have recently arrived themselves. This week, we will think about the immigrant experience by reading literature written by those who have lived it. We’ll look at immigration from two angles: the experiences of immigrants from outside North America and the particular challenges of the US/Mexico border.
