Elizabeth Cohen comments on chain migration in PolitiFact

February 5, 2018


Elizabeth Cohen, associate professor of political science, was quoted in the PolitiFact article, "How legal immigrants to U.S. break down by 'chain migration,' diversity-refugees-asylum and work." "This idea that an immigrant receives a visa and all of a sudden five or 10 close and distant relatives are being pulled in on a chain is completely unrepresentative of how our immigration system actually works," says Cohen. 02/05/18
