This project looks at the process through which Mexican immigrants utilize their families to understand their new political environments. The project specifically explores the ways in which immigrants acquire structural and factual information about political concepts, discussions about politics, and political activities. The three functions of the family are then linked to the overall development of the immigrant's informal and formal membership in a new nation though the concept of multi-tiered membership. Utilizing qualitative interviews and a national quantitative survey of Mexican households, the project explores how differences in these three functions of the family have varying effects on subsequent political membership development.
