Immigration: From Global to Local to Kids. Forum 411: Engaging Arizona's Leaders. Edition 1, Issue 1
Morrison Institute for Public Policy, Arizona State University
Few people think of kids when they think of immigration, yet immigration is as much about children and parents as it is about workers and employers. In fact, the opportunities and challenges represented by Arizona's global generations may be as far-reaching as sanctions and "sweeps." What's going on? This briefing reviews the basics about immigration in terms of what's happening globally, locally, and for kids. It describes the worldwide migration phenomenon and the reality for Arizona that immigration is as much about kids and parents as it is about workers and employers. Defining "Generation G" as young people who are part of the global generations, meaning immigrants or their children, this briefing asks, "Is Arizona ready to make the most of Gen G?" This is the first issue in the new quarterly briefing series "Forum 411: Engaging Arizona's Leaders." (Contains 11 endnotes.) [Support for "Forum 411" is provided by Westcor.]
