“People would gladly go against you just because you don’t agree with them. That’s probably why I don’t talk about immigration and politics in school because I don’t want to be judged.”
Massapequa, NY
Most of what I know about immigration comes from school and joining in on political conversations with my parents. My parents’ opinions definitely influence me. The only time I talk about immigration and politics when I’m not in school is when I’m with them. In school,it’s not very biased. When immigration is discussed in school,my teachers are very neutral. I feel that most teachers have their own personal opinions, but don’t feel it’s appropriate to express them in school. Same goes for peers, most people don’t feel comfortable sharing their thoughts on immigration and other topics. People are always judging each other in school, especially on political topics. People would gladly go against you just because you don’t agree with them. That’s probably why I don’t talk about immigration and politics in school because I don’t want to be judged.
