Irene Bloemraad, faculty affiliate of ISSI's Center for Research on Social Change, published a new article in Ethnic and Racial Studies investigating what it means for Chinese, Vietnamese, and Mexican-origin parents to be American. Bloemraad examines how being an American citizen can't be constrained by dictionary definitions and is, instead, affirmed through behaviors of both citizens and noncitizens.
