"This article makes the case that the new immigration [to the U.S. from developing Latin American and Asian countries], motivated by kinship ties and family reunification provisions of U.S. immigration law, leads to a clustering of new immigrants into areas that are no longer attracting large numbers of native-born Americans. It is argued that the concentration of these groups into ¿high immigration regions' will limit their access to employment and education opportunities that would facilitate their spatial assimilation and upward mobility."
