''Your Presence Is Not Requested''
Not available online
Title''Your Presence Is Not Requested''
AbstractThe U.S. House of Representatives recently passed immigration legislation that would make illegal US presence a crime rather than a civil offense. If it becomes a law, it would affect most Latino adults in the Kansas City metro area. "According to a recent survey by El Centro, a Kansas-based social service agency for Johnson and Wyandotte counties, 82 percent of Latinos in our area are part of families who have members living here illegally." Article goes on and discusses in more detail the legislation. Author states that "most undocumented immigrants tend to work in construction, hospitality, manufacturing and agriculture".
