Immigrants and the States
9 Questions
The federal government has the exclusive authority to decide how many immigrants will be admitted to the United States each year, but those new arrivals make their homes in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Some states with little history of immigration have recently experienced rapid growth in their immigrant populations. As a result, federal immigration policies have a much broader impact across a larger number of states. In addition, states are taking a more active role in immigration policy matters.
