Immigration: Beware of Fake News

Controversy

Be aware that immigration is a controversial subject. Many people are passionate about and have very strong opinions about the topic and may present information in a biased and disingenuous manner. You must assess and fact check the information you are finding and be aware that bias may be present.

Remember, even statistics can be manipulated and twisted to show a particular point of view.
