Professor Elizabeth McCormick, Director of the Clinical Education Program and the Immigrant Rights Project, has contributed a chapter to Contemporary Immigration in America: A State-by-State Encyclopedia, edited by Kathleen R. Arnold and published by ABC-CLIO, LLC, in January 2015. Prof. McCormick’s chapter is entitled “Oklahoma.” The publisher’s website describes the book as “Immigration continues to be a timely and often-controversial subject, particularly regarding legislation at the state level. While many books cover US immigration, both historical and contemporary, few if any reference works examine the role of contemporary immigration in individual states. This two-volume work fills that gap. Chapters address legal, social, political, and cultural issues of immigrant groups on a state-by-state basis and explore immigration trends and issues faced by individual ethnic populations.”
