Few historical topics are of such living interest as immigration. This is partly because so many of us are immigrants or the descendants of immigrants. But it's also because many of the issues surrounding immigration periodically recur.
The immigration debates of today often sound a lot like the immigration debates of the past. Therefore we encourage you to take this opportunity to couple your exploration of the historical questions with an examination of the contemporary issues.
