Coming to America: Regulatory Oversight of United States Immigration Policies: A Brief History.


Journal Article (Review)

This article briefly covers the history of immigration from the US perspective, including the demographic variation over time and the ever-changing policies. Displaced children and their families are facing increasing challenges to their health and overall wellbeing. Since enactment of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, the needs of minors have been caught up in complex immigration policy.

The challenges posed by the magnitude and scope of the immigration problem are discussed.
