Newspapers reported on a “broad consensus” among both supporters of immigration and restrictionists on the need for additional immigration restriction as a matter of national security (Center for Immigration Studies 2001; Miami Herald, November 16, 2001). In an effort to manage the new terrorist threat, drastic changes in immigration policy took effect in the few short months immediately following the attack.
