ABSTRACT
This article discusses the effect of the U.S. government's war on terrorism on U.S. immigrants. The U.S. Congress enacted changes to the nation's immigration laws after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Provisions in the Patriot Act authorizes searches that directly affect citizens and immigrant noncitizens, but their impact will be greater on immigrants, because of the precariousness of their status. Another measure enacted was the restructuring of federal executive authority over immigration into the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
