out to dinner with friends, chances are you will encounter debate
over a political controversy. Are the media biased, and do they
influence politics too much? What should the US do to continue to

barriers and economic strain caused by immigration? None of these

opinions on opposing sides of the issue. Moreover, the solutions
politicians propose to these controversies are more important than
ever due to the upcoming presidential election of 2004. This class
