Students explore immigration issue

Students are becoming more aware of immigration issues and had to go through a checkpoint similar to what AZ SB1070 could turn into. Let's hope this is as close as they will ever get to this happening. - - Donna Poisl

Students walking down Fairfield Way were exposed to a mock immigration checkpoint outside the Student Union in an effort to raise awareness about illegal immigrants in the U.S., according to Dan D'Ademo, a 5th-semester business management major.

Volunteers of the ResLife -sponsored event would ask passersby their mock "checkpoint" questions like "Excuse me sir, are you an illegal immigrant?" or "Do you have your immigration papers?" said D'Ademo.

"We hope they [students] become more aware of the laws set against illegal immigrants and form an opinion, whether it is positive or negative," said D'Ademo.
