The Senate immigration bill, which the White House helped craft and you personally endorse, would double the number of guest workers brought into this country at a time of crippling joblessness and falling incomes. On top of that, the Senate immigration bill would also add millions more permanent immigrant workers through green cards – handing out permanent residency to more than 30 million immigrants over the next decade. This represents a tripling of the normal green card rate.

Another great article on demographics and how you need to adjust your marketing to reach the 'target'.  "As the housing market continues its recovery, it is important to understand the demographic trends which are likely to impact housing demand in the years ahead," said Michael Fratantoni, RIHA’s Executive Director.  "This study provides information for lenders, builders, and policymakers regarding the future shape of housing demand, which the authors clearly show will be substantially impacted by the housing choices of foreign-born households, whether they are renters or homeowners."

Creating a Climate of Possibility for Latino Youth

Creating a Climate of Possibility for Latino Youth | Immigration | Scoop.it

By Jennifer Mayer-Glenn, Assistant Principal, Glendale Middle School: As I reflect on student populations like the one at the school where I am a leader, there has not been a climate of possibility for most students for many years. Our diverse population of refugees, children of refugees, new immigrants, children of new immigrants, English learners, and generations of under-served students need us to create that climate of possibility.

Educational Resources for Romare Bearden: A Black Odyssey | Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service | Immigration | Scoop.it

In 1977, American modern artist Romare Bearden (1911-1988) created a series of artworks based on Homer’s epic poem, "The Odyssey." Rich in symbolism and allegorical content,

 

Bearden's series created an artistic bridge between classical mythology and African American culture. The works conveyed a sense of timelessness and the universality of the human condition.

 

As such, Bearden's "Odyssey" is a perfect match for students and educators who are trying to make connections between the past and present. First thing's first: Download the free apps!
