Dickson-Gomez, Julia. "Growing Up in Guerrilla Camp: The Long-Term Impact of Being a Child

Soldier in El Salvador's Civil War." Ethos 30.4 (2002): 327-56. Web.

This source looks at the lived experiences and trauma of children in the Civil War compared to

those of adults. This research will be useful in establishing that trauma did exist in countries

predominantly holding TPS and DACA and will show the consequences of sending those same

victims back. Considering that this piece was done using the firsthand accounts and lived

experiences of the victims, I would consider it a credible source.

"FY 2016 ICE Immigration Removals." ICE. N.p., n.d. Web.

This report on ICE immigration removals is not only useful knowledge but also imperative in

looking at how immigration is currently targeting certain people. For example, we assume that

ICE officers are targeting immigrants who have priors or have a court date for status that they

failed to attend or ended in a deportation date that they did not meet. According to law, that is

who should get deported but the statistics here say otherwise. This is relevant to my research is

proving that not only are "criminals" being sent back but also working and learning immigrants

who have established a life here in the United States. These are the official numbered reports of

Immigration Customs Enforcement and should be the realistic numbers of people deported in

Mountz, Alison, Richard Wright, Ines Miyares, and Adrian J. Bailey. "Lives in Limbo:

Temporary Protected Status and Immigrant Identities." Global Networks 2.4 (2002): 335-56.


"Lives in limbo: Temporary Protected Status and immigrant identities" looks at the struggle

between Temporary Protection Status and identity. In doing so it established that the United

States has shaped identities by in many ways and that TPS runs deeper than just a patch for war

torn countries. This will allow me to establish the relevancy in TPS even today when it comes to

immigrant identities and where they reside.

Cervantes, Richard C., Dr, Nelly Salgado, and Amado M. Padilla, Dr. Post Traumatic Stress in

Immigrants from Central America and Mexico. N.p., n.d. Web. 27 Sept. 2016.

"Post-traumatic Stress in Immigrants from Central America and Mexico," speaks to anyone

willing to listen but particularly to the United States and its residents. This audience is the same

as mine and will allow the reader to gain a sense of studies done specifically to address the way

the Unites States currently sees immigration. This source used a study that looked at the

relationship between self-reported reasons for migration and PTSD symptoms. It is shown that

there is an association through a table with PTSD symptoms and reason for migration. The

authors here reference lots of other works in order to solidify their stance and to enforce the

notion that stress levels are generally high among immigrants. The case study was done in 1989,

around this time Central America had lots of turmoil, El Salvador for example was going through

a civil war and many of the people leaving the country were refugees. This links directly to my
argument that raids cause fear. For people who came to the US escaping death, the idea of

returning could cause them to experience symptoms of PTSD. The authors were affiliated with

the Spanish Speaking Mental Health Research with their own specialties in areas such as

psychology and education.
