We need to fight for them, for our future, as we remember the words,
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore."
A blog to talk not only about adjunct faculty, but also to discuss all adjunct in society, whether adjunct faculty, students, DREAMers, undocumented, intellectual and low wage workers, and refugees, including families around the world. This crisis, however, is most noticeable coming from Mexico and Central America. These are our neighbors, our friends. As adjunct faculty, we may one day be teaching these students. Besides, if we were in their shoes, wouldn't we want them to take care of us?

"Thank you for your bumper sticker. Immigrants & refugees are our neighbors" 😉
From this, I gather there is hope for everyone here in the United States: we are still a welcoming nation! I think my advice on helping asylum seekers and refugees, then, will come in handy, for those of you who really want ideas on next steps...
