Out soon: “100 Questions and Answers About Immigrants to the U.S.”

In time for the last few months of the 2016 presidential campaign, the Bias Busters series will have a guide that uses research and information you can count on to answer some of the many questions that have been flying around in the debate.

100 Questions and Answers About Immigrants to the U.S.

100 Questions and Answers About Immigrants to the U.S.

* Do immigrants take American jobs?
* Where do they come from?
* Why do people enter illegally instead of just waiting?
* How many immigrants are there in the United States?
* Where do they come from?
* Would a wall at the U.S.-Mexican border help?

You’ll find the answers to these and 96 (at least) other questions in the guide.

We talked to immigrants to learn what were the questions they encounter and feel people should have the answer to. Then, we talked to people, did some research into what polls, studies and others have learned about the immigrant story and we put those into the book. The book, available in digital or print formats, includes about 10 video interviews from the University of Minnesota’s “Immigrant Stories” project. We feel that a stew of statistics cannot tell stories as well as people can.

Our hope is that, with this information, you will be able to have more and better conversations with the immigrants who live, work and go to school with you.
