One of the issues raised by people who are opposed to immigrants is that they are slow to assimilate or they appear not to want to assimilate at all. Transnationalism, the concept that refers to immigrants who maintain strong connections to their homes and home countries, has been blamed for lack of assimilation to American culture. Based on the reading, the Smithri Ram video and the lecture presentation, do you think transnationalism reflects active rejection of assimilation? What does their parents’ transnationalism mean to the second generation, their children who were born and raised in the U.S.?
