According to the United Nations’ 2022 World Migration Report, the U.S. has recorded the highest number of immigrants in the world since 1970. This rapid growth of the immigrant population has drawn scholarly attention to immigrants’ political attitudes and behaviors in the U.S. Doctoral student in political science Minhye Joo will explore how immigrants’ experiences with street-level bureaucrats shape their political attitudes and political participation. She will conduct focus groups, interviews, an observational survey, and survey experiments for her study.
