Communities & Banking;Jun2008, Vol. 19 Issue 3, p6
The article discusses how transnationalism is evoked by the immigrants in the U.S. as it carries out a push for policies that meet the demands of the present time. It speculates changes in the attitude and the working habits of immigrants relative to the dual obligations they partake of. It adds that this growing transnationalism is being supported and recognized by organizations through a collaboration across borders in alleviating the problems in the two countries at the same time.
