Description - Immigration Policy and Security by Terri Givens
Immigration policy in the United States and Europe went under the microscope after the terror attacks of 9/11 and the subsequent events in London, Madrid, and elsewhere. Since that time we have seen major changes in the bureaucracies that regulate immigration, but has that led to significant changes in the way borders are controlled, the numbers of immigrants allowed to enter the U.S. and Europe, and national asylum policies? This book examines a broad range of issues in order to better understand if, how, and why immigration policies and practices have changed in the U.S., Western Europe, and the Commonwealth countries in response to the threat of terrorism. The broad comparative sweep of the case studies permits us to draw conclusions about the readiness of political actors to embrace security measures in the different regions and countries under review. This breadth sheds light not only on the role of national governments but also the role of multilateral institutions like the European Union, and the whole range of migrants: legal, illegal, students, tourists, and refugees.While the primary focus throughout is on policies, an awareness nonetheless arises through the volume that an intensification of immigration politics can have severe consequences for the social and economic circumstances of national minorities of immigrant origin.
