How State Immigration Climate Affects Belonging to State and Country

Immigration of Latinos in America is and will continue to be at the forefront of our country's conversation. More important than all the red tape, is the affect this conversation has on the very people it is about. The toll it takes on the psyche of immigrants, hearing day in and day out that they are unwanted, a problem, or worse, is yet to be determined, but deserves to be further studied.

Nature and Context

Different immigrant policy climates impact how Latinos feel about themselves, their place in their state and country, and how they think they are viewed by others. Latinos exhibit different levels of belonging from state to state, but their alienation is confined to the state level. Policies that delineate outsiders from insiders by immigration status have wide ranging effects that fall prominently on the U.S. born, and impact our systems from politics to economics.
