Immigration policy in the United States, Europe, and the Commonwealth went under the microscope after the terror attacks of 9/11 and the subsequent events in London, Madrid, and elsewhere. We have since seen major changes in the bureaucracies that regulate immigrationbut have those institutional dynamics led to significant changes in the way borders are controlled, the numbers of immigrants allowed to enter, or national asylum policies? This book examines a broad range of issues and cases in order to better understand if, how, and why immigration policies and practices have changed in these countries in response to the threat of terrorism. In a thorough analysis of border policies, the authors also address how an intensification of immigration politics can have severe consequences for the social and economic circumstances of national minorities of immigrant origin. Terri E. Givens is Vice Provost and Associate Professor of Government at the University of Texas at Austin. Gary P. Freeman is Professor and Chair of the Department of Government at the University of Texas at Austin. David L. Leal is Associate Professor of Government and Director of the Public Policy Institute at the University of Texas at Austin.
