The paper looks at the fall of communism in the USSR in 1991 when emigration restriction policies were changed and many people could finally emigrate to the United States. The paper discusses the ongoing struggles of Russia, Ukraine and other former Soviet republics to become democratic countries. The paper explains that these lingering uncertainties, combined with pervasive political corruption and economic stagnation, have convinced many over the last few years that emigrating to the United States is their only hope of a better future.

From the Paper:

"Hutchinson (1981) notes that throughout its history, the United States has experienced continuous immigration, for American political freedoms, religious tolerance, economic opportunities, and huge geographical size have combined to draw millions of people from all around the world to our shores, in hopes of building better lives for themselves and their children. Over the years, the pace of immigration has waxed and waned depending upon political, religious, and economic conditions overseas, and has consisted at different times of a wave of immigrants from Northern European countries, then from southern and eastern European countries, and more recently from Asia and the former republics of the Soviet Union."
