Bob Hanna November 16th, 2010 Munoz, C.B. (2008). Transnational Tortillas. Ithaca, New York: Cornell University Chapter 3 Pages 38-64 Summary This chapter starts off by talking about how the U.S. immigration laws used to be and how they changed over time. Being an illegal immigrant used to be a civil violation but now it is a criminal violation, this being the case illegal immigrants can be fined or imprisoned for a violation of these laws, no matter how small. It goes on to say that people who help the immigrants can also be punished with up to five years in prison. Also people whom intend to hire immigrants must put the social security number in the Employment Eligibility Verifications system (EEVS). This will tell the employer if the social security number is real or not and if s/he could employs this particular person. By the 1980s, however, these changed because the United States realized the need for immigrants as a secondary labor market. In 1986 a new immigration law appeared called the Immigration Reform and Control Act or IRCA.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
