Teaching and learning with new immigrants
Here are three recent headlines about a recent release of data by the Census Bureau:

“Census Says Immigration Is Slowing. The rate of foreign-born people coming to live in the USA has slowed considerably, the Census Bureau says in a report out today” (USA Today, March 10).

“Immigrants still arrive . . . Immigration has continued at a steady pace in the past two years” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, picking up on a Washington Post story, March 11).

“Immigrants’ Population Gains Maintain Speedy 1990s Pace. . . . The number of immigrants living in the U.S. continued to rise at a blistering pace, suggesting illegal immigration hasn’t slowed from its peak levels in the 1990s” (Wall Street Journal, March 10). (In all three quotations, emphasis is mine.)
