Immigration Ban

Students explore two forms of nonviolent protest, strikes and boycotts, using as case studies the strike by the New York Taxi Workers Alliance and the #DeleteUber campaign, both in response to an immigration ban imposed by President Trump.  

Students learn about and discuss the U.S.'s existing policy for vetting refugees and what happened to refugees after President Trump signed an executive order temporarily suspending the U.S. refugee program.  

This lesson explores Trump's immigration ban and the protests and other actions that followed using photos, tweets, and headlines.   

Through roleplays and small group work, students consider erroneous claims about immigration and learn facts to counter them.  

Students learn and talk about Trump’s immigration ban and the reaction to it, and discuss the stories of people who have been directly affected.   

Students learn about opposition to past waves of U.S. immigrants and consider Donald Trump's immigration stance in light of that history.
