The topic of immigration surfaced as a priority for me and is a topic of concern for many.

If there is anything harder than euthanizing a beloved dog for serious behavioral problems, I don’t know what it is.
For example, among these initiatives, there is widespread support for the idea that decisions about welfare should be based on scientific evidence.
Indeed, other stakeholders, such as agricultural universities, also recognize that standards of care of agricultural animals should be based on science.

The 2011 APA Presidential Task Force on Immigration was charged with developing an evidence-based report that addresses the psychological factors related to the experience of immigration, with particular attention to the mental and behavioral health needs of immigrants across the lifespan, and the effects of acculturation, prejudice/discrimination and immigration policy on individuals, families and society.
