Immigration rights have been an issue in the U.S. since 1607 when British settlers began to arrive in search of religious freedom and economic opportunity. Over 98% of the 320 million people that live in the U.S. are descendants of immigrants. How have immigration rights changed over time and what rights do immigrants have now?    

In the Winter of 2016, CUP collaborated with Teaching Artist Meredith Degyansky and Alhassan Susso’s History class at the International Community High School in the Bronx to investigate immigration rights.

Students created skits about the changes in human rights throughout U.S. history, surveyed community members on their opinions of immigration rights, and interviewed Tania Mattos of UnLocal, Inc. about Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Students presented their findings through a live debate and created this poster to share what they discovered.
