Muslim Immigrants in the United States | Center for Immigration Studies | Immigration Research Paper | Scoop.it
Muslims tend to live in the major metropolitan areas where immigrants historically have congregated, including the country's largest cities (New York, Los Angeles, Chicago). More broadly, the Islamic map of the United States features four major regions, all urban: the New York to Washington area; California, especially Los Angeles and San Francisco; a triangle stretching from Chicago to Cleveland to Detroit; and Texas, especially the Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth areas. The southeast and northwest portions of the country have the fewest Muslim immigrants, with the exceptions of southern Florida and the Seattle area.

The crisis is real

Illegal immigration. They affect Americans' lives, jobs and pocketbooks, while the Obama administration intentionally refuses to enforce most immigrationlaws. These realities are precisely why Arizona enacted SB 1070.According to a new study by FAIR, illegal immigration now costs U.S. taxpayers $113 billion a year -- about $1,117 for every native-headed household. Arizona, which like most states is facing a severe fiscal crisis, spends $2.5 billion a year on illegal aliens. In addition, lawful residents see a daily impact on schools, hospitals and, yes, crime as a consequence of the federal government's refusal to enforce immigration laws.

Being Muslim in America

The article discusses the difficulties of being a Muslim in the United States after the September 11, 2001 Terrorist Attacks. Topics include immigration of Muslims to the U.S. in pursuit of freedoms, a comparison of Muslims in the U.S. compared to Muslims in other countries, and the feelings of Muslim immigrants about discrimination and acceptance into the U.S. society. It is suggested that the positive attributes of Muslim-Americans should be discussed more in U.S. politics instead of negative aspects that focus on radicalization of Islam or extremism.

The Future of Immigrant Children

Nearly a quarter of schoolchildren in the United States are immigrants or the children

of immigrants. A substantial percentage of these children, especially those from Latin

America, are falling behind in school. More than 5 million, for example, struggle with their academic subjects because they are still learning English. Evidence shows that three policy reforms—increased attendance in quality preschool, improved instruction in English, and increased attendance in postsecondary education—would improve their school achievement, lift their economic well-being as adults, and increase their economic and social contributions to American society.

A New Kind of Southern Strategy.

The article discusses successful efforts in Mississippi to defeat proposed legislation that, among other things, would have barred undocumented persons from receiving public benefits and limited immigrants' access to apartment rentals. During 2010, 33 anti-immigrant bills were introduced in the Mississippi legislature, yet none of them became law. Labor organizer Bill Chandler' advocacy group mobilized African-Americans and Hispanics to protest the measures. Chandler's wife, Patricia Ice, wrote a bill that became law in Jackson, Mississippi outlawing racial profiling.
