(4 points—one page). Rubric: One point will be deducted for each page in excess of the limit. b) Identify the case study with three systems in social institutions: ♦ The Meza family represents both multigeneration and cross-cultural family structures in the U.S. Define the traditional Mexican culture and cross-cultural family system in the U.S., and analyze pros and cons of cross- cultural family members’ cultural integration and ethnic identity development while living in the U.S. ♦ The Meza family is a mixed status family where Mr. Meza and his children are U.S. citizens, but Mrs. Meza is an undocumented person in the U.S. Analyze how the U.S. health care system may assist or deter each Meza family member? ♦ As a mixed status family, how the social welfare system in the U.S. assists or deters the needs of the Meza family in the U.S. In other words, based on the Meza family’s economic and legal situation, how would the welfare program promote or deter the Meza family?
