A new lesson for high school students uses primary sources to engage students, including those whose reading levels may not yet be at grade level, in exploring the changes in policy in who is admitted to the United States. Efforts to restrict specific groups of people from immigrating to the U.S. are important topics in U.S. History, included in standards for the U.S. History I and U.S. History II high school classes. This lesson uses the 21st century “travel ban,” ruled constitutional in 2018, as an entry point to explore previous shifts in U.S. immigration policy.
