What Is Immigration?
- Immigration is defined as, " People leaving their
home country to live forever in another one".

- People's definition of the word immigration is
based on their own personal experiences.

- Immigrants come by boats, cars, and some
even cross the border by foot.
How can we help immigrants adapt to our culture?
Practice speaking English with new immigrants.
Be kind to them.
Refer to immigrants as documented or undocumented instead of legal and illegal.
Be a good example of how a United States citizen should act.
Teach immigrants our customs and ask them to share their own.
The biggest thing to do is to BE INFORMED AND RAISE AWARENESS about what immigration is.
Why Do People Immigrate?
Central Americans coming to America from El Salvador.
Take Action
We wrote letters to politicians such as Richard Blumenthal asking them to support the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival Act (DACA). This act allows young immigrants to extend their stay in America in increments of two years to get an education and employment.
