|aEmigration and immigration|vJuvenile literature.
Accessible yet sophisticated book that discusses the issues of immigration on a global level. Should people who are oppressed or simply want a better life for themselves be able to move to countries that offer more opportunities? Or does immigration to these countries mean less opportunities for the people who already live there? Are current immigration policies working? Are they fair?
