This course is intended to give students a general overview of the U.S. immigration system and the vocabulary and context for understanding contemporary immigration issues.  We will focus on how people can come to the United States and why they may be forced to leave.  The class will also have a special focus on refugees, recent migratory patterns along the southern U.S. border, the detention of migrants, and public policy discussions surrounding comprehensive immigration reform and executive actions in the current political climate.
