Program in Chicago features UTEP immigration museum
From an AP story published in Seatlepi.com:
CHICAGO — With little progress on immigration reform among lawmakers, the nationwide debate has entered a new space: museums.
A network of U.S. museums launched a program Wednesday in Chicago that aims to grapple with tough questions on immigration, including who should have access to health care, how borders should be controlled, and issues of citizenship and identity.
UTEP’s Paso al Norte Immigration History Museum is among the list:
Other participating museums include the Field Museum and Cambodian American Heritage Museum, both in Chicago; the Levine Museum of the New South in Charlotte, N.C., the Lower East Side Tenement Museum and Ellis Island in New York; the Japanese American Museum in Los Angeles; the New Americans Museum in San Diego; Angel Island in San Francisco; the Tsongas Industrial History Center in Lowell, Mass.; and the University of Texas El Paso’s Paso al Norte Immigration History Museum in El Paso, Texas.
