The Politics of Illegal Immigration, Bilingual Education, and the Commodity of the Post-Technological Society
Sanchez, Heliodoro T., Jr.; Sanchez, Mary Ann
Educational Forum, v72 n4 p329-338 2008
With the increasing number of undocumented workers entering the United States and the costs associated with educating their children, bilingual education may soon become the target of opponents of illegal immigration. Furthermore, recent leftist shifts in Latin American governments have provided an impetus for an educated biliterate population that can build bridges with these countries. This will promote safety for all who live within the Americas, protecting them from acts of aggression and terrorism while promoting commerce and shared progress.
