Abstract

After nearly a half-century of liberal immigration policymaking, the U.S. government has implemented a series of "get tough" reforms in recent years, including the USA Patriot Act of 2001, which are designed to reduce the nation's risk of exposure to future acts of terrorism. Research indicates that most of the amendments to our immigration policy over the past fifty years were designed to facilitate commerce, spread democracy, and promote knowledge and international understanding, especially by forging ties with future leaders abroad through international education programs.'
