Current Research

Thus far I have been using Google Alerts for daily materials on Immigration Law Reform and Hispanic Immigration. Most of the alerts sent are from news services and newspapers. All show biases for and against legal/illegal immigrants. We all do have a viewpoint on any given subject as has I have recently been reminded of by an academic acquaintance. For that reason, I have decided to narrow my search to the psychological effects on the families, which are facing detention/deportation, and separation from family members. Latino/Hispanic communities already are in place here in the United States. I, so far, have found four articles, which analyze the psychological effects on these families; lower academic skills, increased teen pregnancies,Clinical Depression diagnoses and Diagnoses of Extreme Anxiety disorders, to name a few.
