The massive increase in arrivals of refugees from the Soviet Union to the United States since the late 1980s has resulted in pressure on a federation system that is already seeing its resources taxed. One way to compensate financially, and to enlist the efforts of relatives, has been the implementation of anchor family policies. This publication describes such policies and analyzes their success. The data revealed a variety of patterns concerning the involvement of former refugees in the resettlement of their relatives and friends.
