    Totally cool topic, right? The dark side of American Immigration? Makes the bleeding heart in me just want to sing, right? So, it was a big bummer when I actually read it. This book really pissed me off because it could have been a great book. The research is there. The idea is fresh. ...

    Just like they lie about who Colombus really was and that Rosa Parks wasn't the first to stand up for African American rights, no one talks about the people that were imprisoned, sent away, and turned away when America was supposed to be the welcoming country with Lady Liberty standing...

    A brief history of America's attitude toward immigrants, varying from decade to decade. The author gives an overview of the changes, back and forth, throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. ...

    Immigration policies have not always represented the ideals of freedom and this nonfiction text shows the cycle of prejudice, fears, and exploitation that have been directed at marginalized immigrants in American history. The text is only an introduction and focuses on major immigratio...

    Ann Bausman?s examination of the dark side of immigration begins with a powerful juxtaposition of Emma Lazarus? 1883 poem The New Colossus, and Naomi Shihab Nye?s 2008 poem Statue of Liberty Dreams of Emma Lazarus, Awakens with Tears on her Cheeks. On the left side is a stoic, cl...

    In my opinion, Ann Bausum's book "Denied, Detained, Deported: Stories From the Dark Side of American Immigration", a Carter G. Woodson Book Award Secondary Winner, should be required reading for all those involved in determining the future of U.S. immigration policy. In her book, she ...

    Perfect for research on immigration, this nonfiction book brings three specific stories of immigrants' not so great experiences with coming to America. Beautifully told, their stories include the context of national events at the time. Not convinced my middle school students would pick...

    I read "Denied, Detained, and Deported", by Ann Bausum. When i saw the book, the title attracted me right away because to me those words mean something that happens today in real life. Also, I saw that there was picures of different kind of people and I wanted to know what kind were t...

    This book features five separate immigration stories that took place in the United States. The first story is about the Anti-Chinese sentiment that ran rampant through the U.S. during the late 1800?s. The three middle stories are specific to actual people: German-Jew Herb Karliner, J...

    Give me your tired, your poor ... But not too tired, not too poor. And we will give you the red tape, the long line, white bread in its wrapper, forms to fill out, and the looks, the stares that say you are not where or what you should be, not quite, not yet, you will never live ...

    This might sound weird to say, but the idea of immigration and deportation has always been an interest of mine, so I was definitely excited when I picked up this book and had high hopes that it would be wonderfully written. I like that it showed the "dark side" more of less to American...

    This is not a book an advanced high school student would use for in-depth research, but there is plenty in it that is likely to surprise and interest many high school aged readers as well as those in middle school. It is a highly readable non-fiction book that reveals how American ambi...

    This book is about the horror stories behind American Immigration in the past and how they are carrying on in the future. I didn't nessisarily like this book for the way it was written, but I did learn a lot that I didn't know. This book defiantly opened my eyes. Growing up in America,...

    The Statue of Liberty?s welcoming figure is held dear to American hearts. For many it has been. But not for all, U.S. immigration policy has often been more of a limiting factor than all encompassing. It?s has also been governed by racism, prejudice, having political concerns, and ...

    This book is about American deportation and how most of the time it isn't all that good. It also focuses on topics like racism and segregation among the races. Overall it is a really informational book that focuses on a lot of topics. Although as a growing 13 year-old I think that even...

    "Denied, Detained, Deported" was an eye-opening book speaking about the unfair side of immigration that not many know about. This book discussed discrimination, denying constitiutional rights and more, in short biographies of people who were not accepted into this country. Although the...

    This was a tough book to read, but it's important, I think, for young people to understand the complexities and contradictions of our political system. Here, the "push and pull" of following our ideals vs. following our fears and prejudices are illustrated with stark examples of citize...

    109/109 Honestly, in everyone heart has a American Dream. Everyone wants to become rich by their hands. America, one of the richest, freest, most powerful. But even that, they still couldn't contain some groups, the group always live in the dark. Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Afri...

    The story of America has always been shaped by people from all corners of the Earth who came in search of a better life and a brighter future. Immigration remains one of the critical topics in 21st century America, and how our children learn the lessons of the past will shape all our f...

    A close look at immigration restrictions throughout U.S. history. People are kept out due to race or religion or the politics of the times. Specifically studied are the Chinese in the 1880s, the European anarchists in WWI, the Japanese-Americans and German Jews in WWII, and the Hispani...

    This may be a juvenile non-fiction book, but it is NOT an easy read. The author looks at immigration horrors in US history and likens them to situations going on today. It made me very uncomfortable to read about how the US has acted (and still acts). But, if we are supposed to learn f...

    This might sound weird to say, but the idea of immigration and deportation has always been an interest of mine, so I was definitely excited when I picked up this book and had high hopes that it would be wonderfully written. I like that it showed the "dark side" more of less to American...

    This is not a book an advanced high school student would use for in-depth research, but there is plenty in it that is likely to surprise and interest many high school aged readers as well as those in middle school. It is a highly readable non-fiction book that reveals how American ambi...

    This book is about the horror stories behind American Immigration in the past and how they are carrying on in the future. I didn't nessisarily like this book for the way it was written, but I did learn a lot that I didn't know. This book defiantly opened my eyes. Growing up in America,...

    The Statue of Liberty?s welcoming figure is held dear to American hearts. For many it has been. But not for all, U.S. immigration policy has often been more of a limiting factor than all encompassing. It?s has also been governed by racism, prejudice, having political concerns, and ...

    This book is about American deportation and how most of the time it isn't all that good. It also focuses on topics like racism and segregation among the races. Overall it is a really informational book that focuses on a lot of topics. Although as a growing 13 year-old I think that even...

    "Denied, Detained, Deported" was an eye-opening book speaking about the unfair side of immigration that not many know about. This book discussed discrimination, denying constitiutional rights and more, in short biographies of people who were not accepted into this country. Although the...

    This is a very enlightening set of stories regarding American immigration. Stories about the Japanese internment camps during WW2 are included and what it felt like to be an immigrant in America at that time. Also, I never knew that some immigrants were turned away for various reasons,...

    This was a tough book to read, but it's important, I think, for young people to understand the complexities and contradictions of our political system. Here, the "push and pull" of following our ideals vs. following our fears and prejudices are illustrated with stark examples of citize...

    Ann Bausman?s examination of the dark side of immigration begins with a powerful juxtaposition of Emma Lazarus? 1883 poem The New Colossus, and Naomi Shihab Nye?s 2008 poem Statue of Liberty Dreams of Emma Lazarus, Awakens with Tears on her Cheeks. On the left side is a stoic, cl...

    In my opinion, Ann Bausum's book "Denied, Detained, Deported: Stories From the Dark Side of American Immigration", a Carter G. Woodson Book Award Secondary Winner, should be required reading for all those involved in determining the future of U.S. immigration policy. In her book, she ...

    Perfect for research on immigration, this nonfiction book brings three specific stories of immigrants' not so great experiences with coming to America. Beautifully told, their stories include the context of national events at the time. Not convinced my middle school students would pick...

    I read "Denied, Detained, and Deported", by Ann Bausum. When i saw the book, the title attracted me right away because to me those words mean something that happens today in real life. Also, I saw that there was picures of different kind of people and I wanted to know what kind were t...

    In the Non-Fiction book, Denied, detained, deported by Ana Bausum I realized that from immigrators? perspective, America treated them horribly. The story takes place in America around World War II. It seems like the dream of America is the opposite of what you actually get in Americ...

    Give me your tired, your poor ... But not too tired, not too poor. And we will give you the red tape, the long line, white bread in its wrapper, forms to fill out, and the looks, the stares that say you are not where or what you should be, not quite, not yet, you will never live ...

    This might sound weird to say, but the idea of immigration and deportation has always been an interest of mine, so I was definitely excited when I picked up this book and had high hopes that it would be wonderfully written. I like that it showed the "dark side" more of less to American...

    This is not a book an advanced high school student would use for in-depth research, but there is plenty in it that is likely to surprise and interest many high school aged readers as well as those in middle school. It is a highly readable non-fiction book that reveals how American ambi...

    This book is about the horror stories behind American Immigration in the past and how they are carrying on in the future. I didn't nessisarily like this book for the way it was written, but I did learn a lot that I didn't know. This book defiantly opened my eyes. Growing up in America,...

    The Statue of Liberty?s welcoming figure is held dear to American hearts. For many it has been. But not for all, U.S. immigration policy has often been more of a limiting factor than all encompassing. It?s has also been governed by racism, prejudice, having political concerns, and ...

    This book is about American deportation and how most of the time it isn't all that good. It also focuses on topics like racism and segregation among the races. Overall it is a really informational book that focuses on a lot of topics. Although as a growing 13 year-old I think that even...

    "Denied, Detained, Deported" was an eye-opening book speaking about the unfair side of immigration that not many know about. This book discussed discrimination, denying constitiutional rights and more, in short biographies of people who were not accepted into this country. Although the...

    Totally cool topic, right? The dark side of American Immigration? Makes the bleeding heart in me just want to sing, right? So, it was a big bummer when I actually read it. This book really pissed me off because it could have been a great book. The research is there. The idea is fresh. ...
