From debates on Capitol Hill to the popular media, Mexican immigrants are the subject of widespread controversy. By 2003, their growing numbers accounted for 28.3 percent of all foreign-born inhabitants of the United States. "Mexican Immigration to the United States" analyzes the astonishing economic impact of this historically unprecedented influx. Why do Mexican immigrants gain citizenship and employment at a slower rate than non-Mexicans? Does their migration to the United States adversely affect the working conditions of lower-skilled workers already residing there? And how rapid is intergenerational mobility among Mexican immigrant families? This authoritative volume provides a historical context for Mexican immigration to the United States and reports new findings on an immigrant influx whose size and character will force us to rethink economic policy for decades to come. "Mexican Immigration to the United States" will be necessary reading for anyone concerned about social conditions and economic opportunities in both countries.

Recensioner i media

"[The articles] are of interest outside the US simply because mobility across the US-Mexico friontier . . . is the most advanced case of problems affecting much of the developed world; the lessons of policy innovation are well-documented and abundant. . . . A rich collection of thoughtful, rigorous and original contributions."--Nigel Harris "Development Policy Review " "This data driven collection is one that should be of interest to academic audiences, policymakers, and students of immigration generally. . . . The papers enhance knowledge of the economic consequences of immigration for both Mexico and the U.S. and point to important directions for future research."--Michelle Johnson "Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare " "This is a useful book. . . . [It] will inform those scholars who are seeking to bring balance and empirical evidence to this highly emotinal subject."--Daniel M. Masterson "Latin American Studies "
