The exploitation of immigrants is nothing new. Too often day laborers get picked up for work, spend all day working hard, only to get told they'll get paid at the end of the week, or just some other day that never actually comes. Scams like this just scratch the tip of the injustices done to new immigrants in our communities and all over the U.S. In our first bilingual edition of the Bronx Journal, Miguel Perez talks about the "New Immigrant Community Empowerment", an organization dedicated to preventing the exploitation of Day Laborers and Domestic workers, by educating them. Through ESL classes, financial literary courses, and their own tax clinic, Valeria Treves, the Executive Director of this organization, explains how she tries to take the necessary steps to put an end to immigrant ...

In Chapter 6 of 14, "Suits: A Woman on Wall Street" author Nina Godiwalla connects her anceint Persian-Indian, or Parsi, culture to modern times through experiencing the benefits of immigrant community support across the United States. Descended from 10th century Iranian Zoroastrians who immigrated to India and, the United States based Parsi culture is small and extremely close-knit. The culture values achievement and organizes a network to promote successful community members. Godiwalla experiences this first hand as she relocates to Philadelphia to enter MBA studies at the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business. Unexpected support provides Godiwalla firm footing to successfully transition into a new home and school. View more at http://www.captureyourflag.com

RUSSIA TO JUDGMENT? Lyosha Gorshkov is openly gay and has been living in the U.S. for the past three years. Lyosha thought that living in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, the epicenter of the Russian immigrant community in NYC, would be different from his life in Russia. "I got abused a lot here. ... They called me in Russian slurs... and I was just thinking, 'Why should I experience the same being in NY?'" Lyosha organized the first Russian gay pride parade in Brighton Beach. Sibile caught up with Lyosha and his friends in Brooklyn.
Migrant and hosting communities face long-term challenges in the integration process. Immigrants must adapt to new laws and ways of life, while hosts need to adjust to multicultural societies. Integration impacts many facets of life such as access to jobs, real state and public services and can be well approximated by the extent of spatial segregation of minority group residence. Here we conduct an extensive study of immigrant integration in 53 world cities by using Twitter language detection and by introducing metrics of spatial segregation. In this way, we quantify the Power of Integration of cities (their capacity to integrate diverse cultures), and characterize the relations between cultures when they act in the role of hosts and immigrants. https://arxiv.org/abs/1611.01056

A growing community of Somali immigrant families in St. Cloud, Minn., has presented multiple challenges for local educators who have been grappling with not only how to meet the students' linguistic and educational needs, but also how to create a learning environment where they feel safe and welcome. Confronting anti-Muslim sentiment both inside the district and outside in the broader community has been especially vexing. Most of the Somali community in St. Cloud is Muslim. To help build linguistic and cultural bridges between educators and the Somali community, school district leaders hired Ahmed Hassan and Bishar Hassan. The two Somali brothers, who are bilingual communication support specialists, have duties that range from providing verbal and written translations into Somali and ...
04.05.2014 LNT TOP10 Nedēļas nogales latviešu skoliņu skaitam Lielbritānijā strauji dubultojies līdz divdesmit pēdējo divu gadu laikā un izplešoties ne tikai vien lielpilsētās, bet arī Anglijas mazpilsētās un industriālos ciematos, ir apliecinājums latviešu emigrantu vecāku pieaugošajām bažām par viņu bērnu latviskās identiātes būtisko elementu zudumu. Vislielākais izaicinājums tas ir bērniem, kuri dzimuši emigrācijā. Svarīgumu pasvītro fakts, ka no visiem jaunpiedzimušajiem Latvijas pilsoņiem katrs desmitais piedzimst tieši Lielbritānijā. Visbiežāk skoliņas nolemj izveidot mammas, kuras nobažījušās par bērnu straujo angliskošanos. Tāpat arī latviešu emigrantu arvien pieaugošā tendence veidot etniski jauktās ģimenes Lielbritānijā ir liels izaicinājums Latvijai. Bērniem ir gan Lielbritāni...
