  • Superintendent Builds Bridges to New Immigrant Communities

    With his “teach them all” ethos, Superintendent Jim Rollins is on the leading edge of helping immigrant students and their families find a foothold in ArkansasSpringdale Public Schools and the broader community. Springdale’s student body, which swelled from about 5,000 mostly-white students when Rollins arrived in 1980 to 21,500 students in the 2016-17 school year, now educates thousands of Hispanic immigrants, many of them recent arrivals to the United States. Springdale has also become home to one of the largest populations of Marshallese people outside the Marshall Islands, a Micronesian country that was the site of U.S. nuclear tests during the Cold War. “There were years when we would have hundreds of immigrant children and their families come into the district,” Rollins says. “You...

  • Exploring The Growing Culture of Fear in NYC's Immigrant Communities

    Fear - defined as an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. It is a sentiment Alfredo is trying desperately to stave off. But he and his wife Viviana are undocumented - which doesn’t exactly help ease tensions in the midst of unsubstantiated reports of an ICE immigration raid, or fake ICE agents shaking down unsuspecting undocumented immigrants for money. ICE officials confirm forty-one undocumented immigrants from New York were part of recent nationwide sweep...and that the vast majority - thirty-eight of those arrested - had criminal convictions. But we took a look at the breakdown, and at least ten of those arrested immigrants had convictions, not for drug offenses or sexual assaults, but driving und...

But we took a look at the breakdown, and at least ten of those arrested immigrants had convictions, not for drug offenses or sexual assaults, but driving under the influence - and ICE did not respond to our inquiries for details on those offenses, including how long ago they were committed. Now it is an absolute fact the Obama administration logged a record two and half million deportations, and was criticized and accused repeatedly over the years for inappropriately rounding up people who with minor offences on their record, or with no criminal record at all…right alongside hardened criminals. But Alfredo and Viviana - who were obviously living here in Queens during Mr. Obama’s two terms - say based on what they’ve been hearing from the White House these days, any documented immigrant - criminal or no criminal…is now at risk of a one way ticket out of the US.
