Immigration, one of the hot-button topics of the last few years and major key issues of the upcoming election, gets the full attention of this book. Chomsky, coordinator of Latin American Studies at Salem State University, takes the stage in disproving many of the preconceived notions that people may have about immigration. I’m sure that everyone has heard (or said) arguments against immigration – such as the one that immigrants are not assimilating and are not learning English. The author looks to quash those negative sentiments by referencing her sources while making it readable.

I'm the library guy. No, seriously, I'm the only male reference & instruction librarian. I also have the pleasure of serving several campus committees, the Academic Staff Assembly and the Chancellor's Task Force on LGBT Issues, among others.
