A Report of the Working Group on
Women & Immigration
Marjorie Lightman, Ronald Cluett, Jeffrey A. Heller, Kimala Price, Anne
J. Stone, and Bonnie H. Weinstein (2004)
WREI is pleased
to announce the release of its first publication from the Crossing Borders
project. This report was funded by the Rockefeller Foundation and is the
culmination of two years of research.
In a six-part
examination of the changing nature of citizenship, the Crossing Borders
report takes a unique look at United States immigration from a holistic
perspective that makes clear the need to rethink our most fundamental
assumptions about immigration, law, policies, and practices. It integrates
issues of gender and citizenship with the evolution of institutional structures.
In a diverse group of essays, the six authors argue that we are approaching
a breakdown of administrative processes, despite the shift of the old
INS to the new Department of Homeland Security.
