The history of immigration policy in the United States has long-been informed by racism and white supremacy, which has put forth ideas about who belongs and which groups are deemed “worthy” of consideration into the nation. From the Naturalization Act of 1790 which limited citizenship to “free white persons,” to the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, which prohibited immigration of all Chinese laborers until 1943, to the “Mexican Repatriation” program in 1929 that forced one million people of Mexican descent to leave the US, the majority of whom were US citizens, US immigration policy has deep roots in racism. In support of undocumented communities, the Center for Racial Justice in Education sees the current attack on immigrants as a human rights issue. We have compiled this resource guide to support educators, youth, families, advocates, and all communities impacted by Trump’s decision to end DACA.
