    1. I m reading this for a Children s Librarian Workshop A Juvenile Nonfiction book that gives you the facts about what has happened to American immigrants all from different countries, all sharing the belief that America will give them the ability to come to a new country where they can grow their families and prosper, and also sharing the story that America can also treat them with such cruelty and suspicion that they are forced to leave or become oppressed in their new country It is a cycle that [...]


    2. Totally cool topic, right The dark side of American Immigration Makes the bleeding heart in me just want to sing, right So, it was a big bummer when I actually read it This book really pissed me off because it could have been a great book The research is there The idea is fresh It s an important topic like Howard Zinn is important right But, then, I started reading it and its poorly written and confusing A good editor could have helped solve many of the issues but as it stands now, the book is w [...]


    3. Just like they lie about who Colombus really was and that Rosa Parks wasn t the first to stand up for African American rights, no one talks about the people that were imprisoned, sent away, and turned away when America was supposed to be the welcoming country with Lady Liberty standing at the entrance The National Geographic pictures are fantastic and each story is informative.



    4. Immigration policies have not always represented the ideals of freedom and this nonfiction text shows the cycle of prejudice, fears, and exploitation that have been directed at marginalized immigrants in American history The text is only an introduction and focuses on major immigration policies and attitudes that affected Chinese, Russians, Jewish, Japanese, and Mexican immigrants negatively Grade 5 students study immigration and this is a good text for research and a look at laws that have not [...]


    5. Ann Bausman s examination of the dark side of immigration begins with a powerful juxtaposition of Emma Lazarus 1883 poem The New Colossus, and Naomi Shihab Nye s 2008 poem Statue of Liberty Dreams of Emma Lazarus, Awakens with Tears on her Cheeks On the left side is a stoic, clear picture of the Statue of Liberty next to Lazarus poem, whereas the right side is Nye s poem next to the blurry, backside of the Statue which is a photographic illustration of how these poems address the same issues but [...]


    6. In my opinion, Ann Bausum s book Denied, Detained, Deported Stories From the Dark Side of American Immigration , a Carter G Woodson Book Award Secondary Winner, should be required reading for all those involved in determining the future of U.S immigration policy In her book, she outlines how the forces as diverse as economics, racism, national security, and patriotism have shaped immigration history p 11 She also states that, Arguments for and against immigration tend to repeat in cycles By stud [...]


    7. Perfect for research on immigration, this nonfiction book brings three specific stories of immigrants not so great experiences with coming to America Beautifully told, their stories include the context of national events at the time Not convinced my middle school students would pick this up, but book talking may help Would be a good addition to a HS library, I think Already seems outdated with a copyright date of 2009 Unsure about purchase for my library.


    8. I read Denied, Detained, and Deported , by Ann Bausum When i saw the book, the title attracted me right away because to me those words mean something that happens today in real life Also, I saw that there was picures of different kind of people and I wanted to know what kind were they and why are they were they in the cover Another thing that attracted me is that it is from National Geography so I knew this was going to give me facts and I would learn from the past about immigration.Immigration [...]


    9. In the Non Fiction book, Denied, detained, deported by Ana Bausum I realized that from immigrators perspective, America treated them horribly The story takes place in America around World War II It seems like the dream of America is the opposite of what you actually get in America There are 5 separate stories told 3rd person from somebodies diary like Josef Joseph a Jewish man who was denied from entering America In the stories all of them show that America should have been open to immigrators [...]


    10. This book features five separate immigration stories that took place in the United States The first story is about the Anti Chinese sentiment that ran rampant through the U.S during the late 1800 s The three middle stories are specific to actual people German Jew Herb Karliner, Japanese American Mary Matsuda, and Labor activist Emma Goldman The last story is about Mexican migrant workers and how sometimes they are welcome in the U.S and sometimes they are not The stories help the reader reflect [...]


    11. Denied, Detained, Deported is an informative and interesting book about immigrants and their stories from history This book is full of different stories from multiple different immigrants and their different stories that have happened to them throughout their lives THis book helps shed light on a very important topic that still arises today in politics It brings us closer to the mistakes of the past and helps us not repeat those mistakes again This books purpose was to inform those about immigra [...]


    12. Give me your tired, your poor But not too tired, not too poor.And we will give you the red tape,the long line, white bread in its wrapper,forms to fill out, and the looks, the staresthat say you are not where or what you should be,not quite, not yet, you will never live up to us Naomi Shihab NyeAnn Bausum collected stories from different generations, different ethnicities, but one over riding similarity that poem by Emma Lazarus, the one about freedom and opportunity Give me your tired, your poo [...]


    13. This might sound weird to say, but the idea of immigration and deportation has always been an interest of mine, so I was definitely excited when I picked up this book and had high hopes that it would be wonderfully written I like that it showed the dark side of less to American Immigration I felt like the idea and topic was there and it had potential to be an amazingly written book, however I was a little disappointed to read it, to be honest I thought it was wordy and confusing in certain plac [...]


    14. This is not a book an advanced high school student would use for in depth research, but there is plenty in it that is likely to surprise and interest many high school aged readers as well as those in middle school It is a highly readable non fiction book that reveals how American ambivalence about immigration has resulted in some shameful treatment of immigrants at times throughout our history In five brief chapters, using a particular immigrant s experience as a starting point, Bausam explains [...]


    15. This book is about the horror stories behind American Immigration in the past and how they are carrying on in the future I didn t nessisarily like this book for the way it was written, but I did learn a lot that I didn t know This book defiantly opened my eyes Growing up in America, I thought I would get of an education on mistakes that were make in the past, but shockingly most of the stories came as a huge surprise This negative side of American history, must not be something they want to sha [...]


    16. The Statue of Liberty s welcoming figure is held dear to American hearts For many it has been But not for all, U.S immigration policy has often been of a limiting factor than all encompassing It s has also been governed by racism, prejudice, having political concerns, and fear Immigrants wishing to be free are denied throughout this book Ann Bausum examines immigrants stories in history Of the denied, detained, and deported in order to learn from past mistakes This piece is well wrote and has m [...]


    17. This book is about American deportation and how most of the time it isn t all that good It also focuses on topics like racism and segregation among the races Overall it is a really informational book that focuses on a lot of topics Although as a growing 13 year old I think that even though this book had a whole ton of interesting information I don t think that it was structured right I personally feel like this book was structured wrong and told from the wrong perspectives S I think that Ann Bau [...]


    18. Denied, Detained, Deported was an eye opening book speaking about the unfair side of immigration that not many know about This book discussed discrimination, denying constitiutional rights and , in short biographies of people who were not accepted into this country Although the topic is fascinating and disgusting at the same time, the book was written in such a boring matter that made e want to abandon it It was a struggle to read to the end I would not reccomend this book to anybody, unless the [...]


    19. This is a very enlightening set of stories regarding American immigration Stories about the Japanese internment camps during WW2 are included and what it felt like to be an immigrant in America at that time Also, I never knew that some immigrants were turned away for various reasons, so it was very interesting to read about that and learn why This is of a middle school book, although it would provoke much discussion among 4th and 5th graders also It is definitely appropriate for those ages and [...]


    20. This was a tough book to read, but it s important, I think, for young people to understand the complexities and contradictions of our political system Here, the push and pull of following our ideals vs following our fears and prejudices are illustrated with stark examples of citizens being detained, people of different races being excluded, and people exercising their right as Americans being deported, and political refugees being denied And as we all know, the push and pull continues, so remind [...]


    21. 109 109 Honestly, in everyone heart has a American Dream Everyone wants to become rich by their hands.America, one of the richest, freest, most powerful But even that, they still couldn t contain some groups, the group always live in the dark Chinese, Japanese, Russian, African, they fought for their dream, they tried and they failed Only tears and sadness are waiting for them They all fought for their lives, and never stop.


    22. The story of America has always been shaped by people from all corners of the Earth who came in search of a better life and a brighter future Immigration remains one of the critical topics in 21st century America, and how our children learn the lessons of the past will shape all our futures The patriotic stories of hope that shape most immigration books are supplemented here by the lesser known stories of those denied, detained, and deported IL 5 8 Lexile level 1170


    23. A close look at immigration restrictions throughout U.S history People are kept out due to race or religion or the politics of the times Specifically studied are the Chinese in the 1880s, the European anarchists in WWI, the Japanese Americans and German Jews in WWII, and the Hispanics in the 1940s through today.


    24. This may be a juvenile non fiction book, but it is NOT an easy read The author looks at immigration horrors in US history and likens them to situations going on today It made me very uncomfortable to read about how the US has acted and still acts But, if we are supposed to learn from history, we have to examine the good and the bad.


    25. This book explores, in quality detail with a gentle but harsh brushstroke, the reality of America s past endeavors with immigrants It shares the realities of our non welcoming arms, pairing our history with current day actions While this book is focused for teens young adults, it is one I encourage adults to pick up explore their history.


    26. Overall, interesting I am concerned, as a teacher who recommends books to middle school students, the details of the book might bog down a less proficient reader or someone who doesn t know much about history I ll be very careful about whom I recommend this one Definitely lots to be learned from these stories, although it did border on preachy at times.


    27. The stories the author chose are fine examples of the dark side of immigration, but they aren t written in a way that most kids will understand The reader needs to have some sort of historical background knowledge to fully understand the chapters, in my opinion Minor but glaring editing mistakes also hindered this book s impact, but the photos chosen were great.


    28. Information nonfiction text, immigration.Ann Bausum s information texts are always incredible Her bibliography, timeline, resources, etc show the research that she completes I took an immigration class in college so some of this information I learned previously but am glad to have it in a children s literature text There are some different chapters quotes.
