This paper explores whether an individual's news source changes their attitudes and perceptions about authorized and unauthorized immigration in the U.S. I focused on the 2 major English language media platforms, CNN and FOX news and one Spanish language media platform, Univision. Through a two week content analysis, I compared the differences in the top story of each media outlet webpage and the importance in which they cover and frame immigration. I hypothesize that each media frames and covers immigration in different ways. Each website’s’ viewers thus observe the information and create a different perception of immigration thus influencing true nature of their political participation during elections. I expect to find a correlation between the immigration news coverage of media outlets, the perception created among viewers, and the effects on political standpoints and participation.
