This chapter starts by examining the history of Tibetan immigration to the United States prior to the TUSRP. It then examines the establishment of the TUSRP by U.S. backers, its structure, and initial responses to it in exile society as evidenced in interviews and publications. The discussion outlines three primary areas associated with increased migration to the United States of concern and interest to Tibetans: culture preservation and loss, the effects of migration on the political movement, and the economic impact of migration.

Keywords:   Tibetan immigration, TUSRP, United States, exile society, culture preservation
