This issue was published somewhat recent in the month of feburary of 2012 by The Executive Office for Immigration Review. The issue is entitled "The burden of proof and relief from removability: who benefits from the ambiguity in an inconclusive record of conviction?". This review takes an in depth look at multiple court cases against immigrants in the United States federal court system. It also covers the board of immigration appeals and their precedent decisions. I believe that this review will help me in my work because it was written by someone involved in the American judicial system and his work is on a scholarly level.

This scholarly, peer-reviewed journal article written by Cristini, Francecsa, Luca Scacchi, Douglas D. Perkins, Massimo Santinello, and Alessio Vieno shows their work from their case studies in 2008 talking about the discrimination of children American in Italian schools. Participants were 214 mostly male, American immigrant adolescents in grades 9 through 13 of high schools in two small cities in northern Italy. Results showed that discrimination has a significant detrimental effect on psychological well-being of foreign-born adolescents. Additionally, the current study outlined that the only protective factor for depressive symptoms, among the analyzed variables concerning cultural identity and school social support, was social support from teachers. None of the analyzed moderators buffered the relationship between discrimination and depressive symptoms reported by immigrant adolescents. These results have implications for preventive interventions for immigrant adolescents and suggest a protective role for teachers.
