  • TITLE: How Immigration Law Impacts the Household Life of F-2 Wives in the USA

    AUTHORS: Samit Dipon Bordoloi

    KEYWORDS: Gender, Wives, International Students, F-2 Visa, Migration, Reproductive Labor

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Social Sciences, Vol.4 No.10, October 26, 2016

    ABSTRACT: This paper utilizes a feminist framework to examine the impact of immigration policies on the family and household life of wives of international students. The research process included interviews with thirty-two wives who came to the US on a F-2 visa, along with analysis of immigration policies. Immigration regulations, which prohibit wives from accessing full-time education and employment opportunities, reinforce traditional gender identities within the family. Migration is associated with a loss of power and unequal status within the marital relationship. F-2 wives report a significant increase in their burden of unpaid reproductive labor. The findings of this study contribute to the growing body of literature on how the migration of families to the United States is shaped by gendered institutions.
