Latino Immigrant Access to Higher Education in a Bipolar Context of Reception
Flores, Stella M.; Chapa, Jorge
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v8 n1 p90-109 2009
This study evaluates the recent political context in which foreign-born noncitizen immigrants in the United States exist, their traditional and new settlement locations of residence, and where they are most likely to use public policies that encourage college enrollment. Legislative trends indicate that state activity continues to evolve around the issue of college access for undocumented immigrants, whereas U.S. congressional activity on the federal version of this educational legislation and general immigration policy remains unresolved. (Contains 5 tables, 1 figure, and 5 notes.)
