From C-SPAN Classroom Deliberations

“This deliberation explores the range of limitations that might be applied to immigration in the United States, largely in the context of the proposed RAISE and Criminal Alien Gang Member Removal legislation and the various historical iterations of American immigration policy.” Background articles, videos, and handouts are provided.

  • Students will identify and contextualize the history of immigration policies in the United States, and the factors behind the latest series of policy debates.
  • Students will analyze video clips to summarize the key arguments supporting more restrictive immigration policies and the key arguments against such initiatives.
  • Students will deliberate the extent to which the Federal Government should limit immigration in the future.
