A Nation of Immigrants

Nation of Immigrant

We know that almost all of us in the United States are immigrants or decendents of immigrants. We also know that undocumented immigrants play important roles in our communities -- as family, friends, colleagues, students, and people who have overcome tremendous obstacles to seek safety and possibility in the United States. We stand with all who defend DACA and offer this reading list to those who wish to learn more or educate others about the immigrant experience. Have a favorite book on the topic to add to this list? Write to us at pointreyesbooks@gmail.com.
