From the Preface
The number of first-generation, documented and undocumented immigrant individuals in the United States is 19.8 million, up 106% from 1970. Although much is known about their numbers and origins, very little is known about immigrant families even though their experience in the process of assimilation and adaptation is vital. Several questions are central to understanding the migrant experience and family outcomes. The chapters in this book address these questions and related issues.
Who Are Migrants and How Does This Status Affect Family Outcomes?
Lead Speaker: Ruben Rumbaut, Michigan State University
How Does the Migration Experience Affect Child and Adolescent Development?
Lead Speaker: Cynthia Garcia-Coll, Brown University
How Does Family Structure and Process Change across Succeeding Generations?
Lead Speaker: Ray Buriel, Pomona College, Claremont Colleges
What Policies Enhance or Impede Immigrant Family Links to U.S. Institutions?
Lead Speaker: Michael Fix, Urban Institute
