Abstract

About 5 million children born in the US live with at least one undocumented parent. In new research, Alex Street investigates what having an undocumented parent means for their children's' interest in civic and political engagement later on in life. Rather than having a chilling effect, as might be expected, he finds that the children of undocumented immigrants have the same level of interest in community involvement, and are actually more likely to be activists on immigration issues.
