early stage migration
Early-stage migration
  • Tends to be circular

early stage migration family and community
Early-stage migration: family and community
  • Extended families provide support
    • Paying migration costs
    • Raising children
  • Attempt to solve problems internally
  • Effects of migration not easily visible outside families
examples of family breaking policy
Examples of family-breaking policy:
  • Deportation of migrant members of mixed-status families
    • Family members stressed during long waits in home community
    • U.S.-born children’s bureaucratic limbo
  • Enforcement that pushes people into clandestinity makes for lost connections
  • Less permeable border raises costs: children wait longer to see parents
  • Opaque detention system
    • Migrant relatives difficult to locate
    • Communications prohibitively expensive
    • Health and other problems difficult to address
  • Visa restrictions impede family visits for key family events, illness, other needs
