Dominican Family Networks and United States Immigration Policy: A Case Study.
Garrison, Vivian; Weiss, Carol I.
International Migration Review, v13 n2 p264-83 Sum 1979
This analysis of the acculturative process of one immigrant Dominican family shows that United States immigration policy forces the separation of families. Immigration regulations do not recognize the cooperating kin groups as "family," and thus necessitate extra-legal strategies to reunify these extended families. (MC)
