Issue Brief: Asian Americans and Immigration

Christopher, Morgan; Smith, Raymond Arthur

This issue brief will succinctly discuss the history of the first Asian Americans and their isolation into "Chinatowns and Koreantowns." It will then consider how the "model minority" is a misrepresentation of Asian Americans. Lastly, it will demonstrate that "illegal immigration" is an issue concerning Asians and not just Latinos.
