One of the major issues occupying today's headlines is immigration, and especially, who should be allowed to come to the United States and who should be forced to leave through the process of deportation. Exploring this issue means not only looking at the experiences of immigrants, but also the repercussions of barring certain groups of people on the basis of religion or fear. From building a wall between Mexico and the United States, to the fate of children separated from their parents when they have illegally entered the country, these issues fill U.S. headlines every day.
