Immigration is a controversial topic in the United States, as in many parts of the world. Anti-immigrant sentiments portray immigrants as “threats” to the nation and seek to reinforce divides between immigrants and Americans. Others are quick to refer to America as a nation of immigrants in attempts to highlight commonality and reinforce connections to our history. Scholars of U.S. immigration disagree about whether contemporary immigrants (post-1965) will experience intergenerational assimilation similar to earlier immigrants primarily from Eastern and Southern European countries of origin. Use course materials to make an argument that contemporary immigrant groups either will or will not experience assimilation like earlier U.S. immigrants AND discuss the benefits (“pros”) and drawbacks (“cons”) of this for U.S. society. To fully address this question and demonstrate a sociological perspective, your essay should refer to theory and evidence in comparing/contrasting the characteristics of immigrants and the host society across these periods of history.
(NOTE: I am not necessarily asking for your personal opinion; you should make the strongest argument that you can based on course lessons.)
