    Foreword

    Human Rights for Undocumented Students and Their Families

    MARY C. WATERS
    Despite attempts at reform by both Presidents Bush and Obama, Congress has failed to deal with what most Americans recognize to be a deeply flawed immigration system. Currently, more than eleven million people live in the United States without legal authorization. These immigrants have been forming families, working, buying homes, sending their children to school, attending church, playing sports, watching television—in short, they have been integrating into American society.

    Mary C. Waters is the M. E. Zukerman Professor of Sociology at Harvard University. Her work has focused on the integration of immigrants and their children, the transition to adulthood for the children of immigrants, intergroup relations, the measurement and meaning of racial and ethnic identity, and the social, demographic, and psychological impact of natural disasters. Recent books include Coming of Age in America: The Transition to Adulthood in the 21st Century (University of California Press, 2011; coedited with Patrick Carr, Maria Kefalas, and Jennifer Holdaway); The Next Generation: The Children of Immigrants in Europe and North America (New York University Press, 2011; coedited with Richard Alba); and Inheriting the City: The Second Generation Comes of Age (Russell Sage Foundation, 2008; coauthored by Philip Kasinitz, John Mollenkopf, and Jennifer Holdaway), which won the 2010 American Sociological Association Distinguished Contribution to Scholarship Award, the Mira Komarovsky Award of the Eastern Sociological Society, and the Thomas and Znaniecki Award of the International Migration Section of the ASA. Waters is the chair of the National Academy of Sciences Panel on the Integration of Immigrants into American Society.
