White House policy may have affected more in family immigration

This country may have been founded as a nation of immigrants, but in today's world, there are disagreements about how immigration should be managed. The current presidential administration has been known for taking a hard-line stance on immigration of which some support and others do not. In New York, where there are several sanctuary cities, many current residents risked a great deal to get here, hoping to complete the process of family immigration. Along the southern U.S. border, where the center of the immigration debate seems to have settled, many children were separated from their families when they arrived. Experts are now saying that the old policy may have affected more people than previously thought.

Family immigration, one of many facets of overhaul

Reform could change focus from family immigration to work

Concerns about economic growth are causing the experts to look into certain policy reform. In New York and beyond, one such area of interest is skill-based and family immigration.

Family immigration and merit immigration basics

Talk of changes in immigration policy is causing some individuals to review the various ways that immigrants arrive in the United States.

Family immigration helps immigrants achieve

Opinions vary widely on exactly how we should support new citizens coming to the United States. Some argue that generous family immigration policies enable new transplants to succeed -- not only in emotional ways, but as an important driver of economic success.
