Immigration is one area in which America started to put restriction after 9/11incident. In fact, America started to conduct body checkups on all suspected visitors of America, especially from the Muslim community. Even former India’s president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam forced to undergo body scanning in one of the American airports recently. Before 9/ 11, United States was an immigrant’s paradise. However, after 9/11, the conditions has changed for immigrants very dramatically. In fact, Americans are still living in the terrible memories of 9/11 incident. They never experienced such an experience in the recent past. America has started to tighten the screws on immigration in the name of homeland security after the 9/11 incidents. It should be noted that America was ready to accept or welcome people from any parts of the world to their soil before the 9/11 attacks. However, at present they are not much interested in encouraging immigration of any kind, especially from Muslim countries. Because of the tightened immigration policies, immigrants all over the world are currently struggling to find a place in America. Turkish people are one of the major community which is facing severe problems in America. In fact there are many Turkish Americans in America who started to stay away from the mainstreams of American social life. Right after the 9/11; discrimination, stereotyping, and hate crimes started to increase dramatically in America. Americans started to visualize all people of Muslim origin suspiciously after 9/11. Aims and Objectives The first aim of this paper is to research about 9/11 and it is social, economic, and psychological effects on the Immigrants from Turkey. The second aim is to find out whether the immigrants were able to adapt with the social life of United States. The major objective of this paper is to show how the immigrants, especially Muslims, struggle to find a place in America because of the new policies. For convenience, this paper limits its focus on Turkish immigrants to learn more about the immigration problems in America at present facing by the Muslim community. Additionally, this paper shows how the backlash after 9/11 terrorist attacks interrupt the adaptation process of the Turkish Americans. Methodology In order to get more insights into the topic, I conducted a survey among the Turkish American people of New York. This survey has included many questions related to the social, economic, and political life of Turkish Americans in United States after 9/11 incident. Questions such as; Why did they live in United States; Which factors forced them to come here; Do they like living in United States at present; Do they interact with other cultures, and How did 9/11 affected their lives etc. Apart from the above survey results, interviews, document analysis (such as newspaper, essays about 9/11 and its effects on Turkish immigrants), media analysis, direct observations etc are used to write this paper. This research comprises of three parts. In the first Part, I give the immigration history from Turkey to United States and the adaptation of the immigrants to United States. In the second part I give information about backlash on Turks, and the consequence of that backlash. In the third part I evaluate the data obtained from my research. Turkish Immigration to United States Immigration from Turkey started during
