Immigration Enforcement Study
Experiences with immigration enforcement during childhood have long-standing socio-emotional impacts in adulthood, but what is the nature of those experiences that make the difference?
A recent study has explored the dynamics of enforcement that shape children’s lives over time. The research, published in the Journal of Marriage and Family, used in-depth interviews with young adults who were minors in the mid-2000s to draw conclusions and then policy implications.
Moses Nagel spoke to the studies lead author, UAlbany sociology professor Joanna Dreby.
