General Catalog:

United States immigration policy and political consequences of Latino population growth; contrast of political experiences of Latinos with groups and ideals of democratic political systems; analyses of past immigration policies; studies of public opinion, voter turnout, and campaign tactics.

Description:

The size of the Latino population is growing at a fast pace, especially in the Midwest. What are the political consequences of this growth? What do we know about the political behavior of Latinos? How might events such as the passage of Arizona’s new immigration law change the political landscape of the US? Is such a policy likely to be effective? The course will tackle issues such as these by examining analyses of past immigration policies, as well as studies of public opinion, voter turnout, and campaign tactics.
