NCRW Policy Brief: Immigration

In recent years, immigration has figured prominently in national politics and has become a cause of concern for communities and cities across the United States. While much attention has been focused on pathways to citizenship, the cost of unauthorized migration to states and cities, and how to secure national borders, very little attention has been paid to the plight of women immigrants and the additional challenges they encounter because of their gender, including their additional responsibilities as mothers and caregivers.
