Digital Citizenship + Liberal Arts = Students Empowered for Life
"one of the commonalities we found was a distinct separation between tools used for school and tools used personally. Students often do not see or understand how systems that live solely in the institutional realm work, but rather use them as isolated tools having little to do with their identity building. If students had a better understanding of how our institutional systems defined them, could this allow students to have a better understanding of themselves?"

Why Stripping American Citizens of Their Passports Is a Precursor to Genocide
Taking away people’s passports and citizenship is a precursor to genocide.

It’s what happened to Jews in Germany in 1938 when their passports were declared invalid. That is what is beginning to happen here, now, to Hispanic citizens along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Oh, is it bad to compare the GOP to Nazis? Well, if members of the GOP do not like being compared to Nazis, they should consider not behaving exactly like Nazis.

Hispanic U.S. citizens, some of whom were in the U.S. military, are not being allowed to renew their passports. This is reportedly happening to “hundreds, even thousands” of Latinos, according to a report in the Washington Post. They’re getting letters from the State Department saying it does not believe they are citizens. The government claims their citizenships are fraudulent. “I’ve had probably 20 people who have been sent to the detention center—U.S. citizens,” Jaime Diez, an attorney in Brownsville, told The Washington Post.

The Washington Post also reports on ICE officials coming to citizens' homes and taking their passports away. This is an escalation from a few months ago, when Americans were detained by ICE officials just for speaking Spanish to one another.

Trump is half-right. Congress can end birthright citizenship.
Yet those critics who say the rule can change only through a constitutional amendment, such as House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and the Atlantic’s Garrett Epps, also go too far. The 14th Amendment’s citizenship clause, as attorneys George T. Conway III and Neal Katyal correctly note, was an effort to define previously enslaved African Americans as U.S. citizens. But when they acknowledge that “it is Congress, not the president, who is in the driver’s seat when it comes to immigration,” they fail to note that it can steer birthright citizenship policies in a new direction.

The 14th Amendment’s citizenship clause did not even address, much less resolve, the question of citizenship for the U.S.-born children of undocumented immigrants. As we discuss in our 1985 book, “Citizenship Without Consent: Illegal Aliens in the American Polity,” the federal government was not then restricting immigration. (The U.S. slave trade was banned by this time, but that was not immigration in any sense we think of it today.) Although the clause states, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside,” Congress and courts were left to work out the full meaning of the words, “and subject to the jurisdiction thereof.”

The Constitution empowers Congress, the Article I branch of government, to establish rules for naturalization. Congress has consistently exercised that authority to design citizenship policies, and federal courts have consistently supported this: Native Americans born within tribes, sometimes also termed “domestic dependent nations,” were found not to possess birthright citizenship in the 1884 Supreme Court holding in Elk v. Wilkins. There, the high court acknowledged that the plaintiff was “subject, as residents of the states, to all the burdens of government” but yet, as a Native American, was not considered part “of any political community, nor entitled to any of the rights, privileges, or immunities of citizens of the United States.” Regardless of how retrogressive that reasoning sounds now, it was only after passage of the Indian Citizenship Act of 1924 that all Native Americans were recognized as citizens by the federal government.
