Interviews with Today's Immigrants

The Library of Congress offers the immigration stories on this web site for scholarly and educational purposes, to illustrate the American immigration experience during the second half of the 20th century and the early years of the 21st century. These interviews were collected during 2004-2006. The Library has published only those submissions that, in the judgment of Library staff, contribute positively to the learning experience of the Library's wide audience. The Library may have edited submissions, as appropriate. This student work is presented “as is” and the Library makes no representations, warranties or guarantees with regard to the accuracy, completeness, or reliability of this information. The Library values the privacy of participating students, teachers and immigrant subjects and seeks to protect all contributing parties from unnecessary display of personal information. Participants’ full names are kept confidential, and interview stories were published with written permission from the educator, the student interviewer, the interviewed subject, and/or their parents/guardians. Participants have dedicated their intellectual property rights in the materials to the public.
