Children of Immigrants Finding a Place in U.S. Society


The number of American children won’t shrink in the coming years, but the number of children of non-Hispanic whites will drop along with the baby boomers, and those who fill the gap will be children and grandchildren of immigrants. How are we preparing them to play a role in the future of our country? On this hour of “All Sides,” we’ll hear from an immigration expert, and also from a founder of Rwandan Women in Action a local group that provides mutual support to refugees from Africa.


  • Richard Alba (Sociology Professor, City University of New York)
  • Tatiana Adams (Co-Founder, Rwandan Women in Action)

NOTE: This is a repeated segment of “All Sides” that originally aired on Nov. 15, 2011.
