Abstract

[During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, millions of individuals immigrated to the United States via New York City. As they arrived in their new home, they floated by the Statue of Liberty, which, via Emma Lazarus’ poem, declared to the world, “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” Although the great migration of that time has ended, millions of people still arrive in the United States every year seeking new opportunities. For example, the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) documented that not only was the United States the top destination for international migrants in 2013, but it was also home to about 20 percent of all international migrants (MPI 2014). In 2013, the US Department of Homeland Security reported that over 1 million individuals obtained a “green card” (or legal permanent resident status, LPR) in 2012 and over 750,000 individuals were naturalized (Lee 2013, 1; Monger and Yankay 2013, 2).]
