Journal of Education and Training Studies, v4 n4 p105-110 Apr 2016
Today, Americans are increasingly concerned about the matter of immigration in the United States. A growing number believe that immigrants are a burden to the country, taking jobs and housing and creating strains on the health care system. Many Americans are also worried about the cultural impact of the expanding number of newcomers to the U.S. This paper aims to present a brief but concise discussion by reviewing literature that deals on the development of ethnic identity of first generation immigrant students in the U.S. This is a relevant study since the influx of immigrants coming into the U.S. has made a great impact on the over-all societal changes.
