As many social studies educators have been teaching for years, human migration is taking place all over the world. Wars, political upheaval, climate change, terrorism, trafficking, and extreme poverty displace people or make survival in one’s home region tenuous. As we have seen from anthropology and DNA based ancestry analysis, global migration has been happening since the beginning of humankind. It has always shaped communities, economies and cultures. What is rarely discussed are the different categories of migrants and the legal systems that protect both local communities and migrants themselves. 

With so much misinformation is floating on social media and other sources accessed for information, it is important to engage our students and our selves with those who work in the field and have non politicized information to share. Dr. Nielsen has been working in education for more than 20 years.
