AAA General Statement on Immigration

Following the passage of anti-immigration laws in several states, the Executive Board’s Ad Hoc Group on Immigration has released a statement making recommendations to avoid investing in areas that sponsor or pass such legislation.

In further investigating the immigration issue, the Executive Board’s Ad Hoc Group recommends the Executive Board continues to monitor closely and avoid investing in states that sponsor laws that:

  • give police broad powers and discretion to single out members of a specific ethnic group whether in principle or by practice;
  • remove social services from undocumented immigrants;
  • ban undocumented immigrants from public schools and colleges, and/or charge discriminatory fees;
  • criminalize those who drive or shelter undocumented immigrants; and
  • require individual identification cards that indicate immigration status.

  3. I agree with Margaret Trawick–this is an important statement, consistent with anthropology’s history and research. At a time when many classes are discussing the importance of Franz Boas, this is a contemporary link. For more, see my blog-post Anthropology on Immigration: The AAA General Statement.

  4. The study of cultural context in Anthropological study created the extra form cultural anthropology.
    Cultural Anthropology’s near problem on youth engages both very old anthropological theme, such as politics, religion, and spending, as well as present-day concerns together with medium, popular culture, and movement. The cultural anthropology also cover the area mainly on culture. With taking sides and economic unrest washing from first to last North Africa and the Middle East, youth are to be found, both figuratively and literally, at the forefront of these debates and protests. It is based on the study of culture.This moment burden renewed consideration and conceptualization of youth.
