Explorations in Ethnic Studies
With the data we have the evidence of need, with the proposed method, we have been offered a logical approach to difficult conditions, but what we need now is a method for overcoming the extraordinary conditions. Salcido's contribution is both an offering and a projection of one of a number of serious Social problems in the United States. As an offering, this paper provides data sustaining the structure and validity of a model; as a projection, Salcido focuses the phenomena of United States/Mexican border relations as that situation concerns United States nationalism and Mexican aliens who are illegal residents, especially in southern California. The here and now situations, identified by Salcido, as they pertain to “minority” individuals in the United States, continue without effective intervention from social workers who are training in the mores of traditional social and behavioral science epistemology.
