Notice: 300 words for this discussion post + 80 words for a response on a student’s post of this assignment(The 300 words discussion post is DUE by Wednesday 11 PM. The student’s post will be upload as soon as you finished the 300 words discussion post but this one is DUE by Saturday 11 PM)Use the current module’s assigned readings and documentary as context to examine issues of Asian immigration in the current political climate. For example, in the past, Trump’s rhetoric has called for idea of tougher restrictions on immigration, including imposing travel bans, building a border wall with Mexico and rescinding the Obama administration’s DACA policy. What’s also important to note is that even though undocumented immigration is traditionally seen as an area that specifically concerns Latinx immigrants, undocumented Asian Americans comprise a visible aspect of this group, and there have also been a number of Asian American organizations and activists that tackle these kinds of immigration. (But unfortunately, like many of the issues discussed in this course — those elements tend to either be ignored or underreported.)For this discussion though I’m asking that we frame things within the parameters of this course, as well as the assigned readings. Consider those that could be impacted by a DACA rescission (or just a general failure to address the issue of status) — something that will continue to loom in political debates. Undocumented youth are a population that have been seeking status adjustment with federal legislation that has been in the works for over a decade now.DACA-recipients generally did not have a choice in the decision to migrate (being either too young to understand and/or brought over by their parents and relatives) and grow up in all respects “typically” American, often with little ties to the countries from which their parents migrated. (A well-known example is the case of Filipino American Jose Antonio Vargas who became a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist before he revealed his status in a New York Times article (Links to an external site.)). However, as these youth grow up they realize that as undocumented immigrants they encounter numerous barriers in education and employment, as well as facing the constant threat of deportation back to a land that they are completely unfamiliar with. Arguments opposed to DACA assert that this would continue to open up undocumented immigration, and in fact, “reward” this kind of behavior.While courts decide on current policies and overall federal legislation addressing immigration reform is still pending, states (such as California) have taken the initiative to extend opportunities to undocumented youth, allowing for in-state tuition and access to financial aid that they would have otherwise been denied as you may remember. Moreover, the past Obama administration’s Executive Action (Links to an external site.)s were geared toward allowing these youth some semblance of “normalcy,” and the Biden administration shares some of the same basic concerns.However, these Asian Americans are still considered “undocumented,” and rescission remains a possibility without further legislative action. These communities face a bigger dilemma. For this discussion, reflect upon the specific problems that undocumented Asian Americans face in the United States and the politics around their status. Who are they, and what ethnic groups are represented? Should such a population be granted a chance to adjust their status, if these immigrants are willing to get an education and find gainful employment? What elements of the articles or the short documentary did you find particularly worthy of discussion? (Include specific examples in your responses.)Moreover, understand that there are also political differences within Asian American communities: who are some of the opponents to undocumented immigrants? Importantly, how do the issues referenced in this module also connect with material that we have discussed before?Links of sources:Data on Undocumented Asian Americans
