The article compares the role of immigration issues in the development of national security policy in the United States and Europe in the early 21st century. The effect on immigration policy of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and similar incidents is a particular focus, with discussion of heightened restrictions on immigrants and tighter border controls in the wake of the attacks. Economic aspects of immigration are also discussed, as are American and European policies for the integration of immigrants.
