This article discusses the misuse of immigration policies by the U.S. government after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. U.S. President George W. Bush and the U.S. Congress have screened immigration policy proposals and enforcement procedures after the terrorist attacks. And they heeded the appeals to implement harsh immigration policies. The Migration Policy Institute conducted a study of U.S. immigration policies. It concluded that harsh government measures against immigrants failed to make the country safer, violated fundamental civil liberties, and undermine national unity.
