The current immigration regime—in its enforcement as well as on its legislative side—contributes to reconfigure immigrant families in at least three ways. On the enforcement side, deportations have led to family separations and the uncertainty of reunification; on the legislative side, provisions in family reunification laws have created conditions for long-term separations and for certain family members to immigrate while others cannot; and those immigrants who go through the legalization process enact behaviors and practices that transform their families. Together these three processes contribute to shape the formation and composition of immigrant families today with possible long-term consequences.
