Common to African, American Indian and native folklores, The House of Bug Representatives and Bug Immigration Reform by author Heather Bankrupt unveils characters and plot that came from the desire to use animals to entertain and teach life lessons. “Animal Farm” by George Orwell inspired the overlay of immigration (a current political issue) on the story. The other narrative objectives of this book are to highlight general education sciences: biological, environmental, and behavioral (especially political science and economics), and to provide a “safe” anecdote that will inspire engaging and inclusive dialogue on immigration reform.

Excerpt from The House of Bug Representatives and Bug Immigration Reform:

Imagine that your home—with its windows, doors, and walls—stands for the outside borders of a country, and outside is an insect, a housefly, seeking entry by any means necessary, legal or illegal. You resist, but the housefly enters and struggles to understand your hostility and unwillingness to share as housemate. The question is, “What can we as Americans, with other human beings, learn about immigration from the biological motivations of a housefly?

In America, the immigration reform topic might come up as the undocumented migrant issue, border security or bi-lingual education. In Europe, the topic might surface under homegrown terrorism and cultural assimilation. Human immigration is motivated by biological and evolutionary factors, not simply environmental catastrophes and political, social and economic crises. As with the success of insects, human migration is necessary for the development of the human species.

The book uses the human and household bug conflicts as a metaphor to discuss human immigration and the political challenges surrounding immigration reform within any democracy. Wherever parochial self-interest dominates democratic legislative behavior, the resulting outcomes may not lead to a sustainable future.

The House of Bug Representatives and Bug Immigration Reform addresses a controversial issue from a new, creative and safe perspective. Immigration reform is a current and contentious issue in many countries, especially western industrialized nations.
