The characteristics and role of illegal aliens in the U.S. labor market : an exploratory study by David S North( Book )

7 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Data on the characteristics and labor market experiences of illegal aliens in the U.S. work force were collected by voluntary interviews with 793 apprehended illegal immigrants who had worked at least two weeks in the U.S. From the resulting diverse collection of case histories, it was concluded that (1) illegal workers in the U.S. are likely to be disadvantaged persons with little education and few skills and employed in low-level jobs (Most reported employment as the primary motive for migration and sent an average of $105 a month to their homeland to help support an average of 4.6 people); and (2) since illegal workers are successful in finding low-level jobs due to work experience in their own countries, and appear to be highly motivated and productive, an increasing supply of illegal aliens is likely to depress the educational and skill level of the workforce, depress labor standards in the secondary sector, cause displacement of low-skill legal resident workers, and create a new class of disadvantaged workers. Data are provided for the survey respondents on demographic characteristics, work experience, backhome socioeconomic conditions, reasons for migration, and on their contact with various governmental systems. U.S. immigration policy and practices are discussed, as well as the role and impact of illegals on the U.S. labor market. Appended to the report are results of another survey of illegal immigrants and the interview schedule. (Nj)

5 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study reviews refugee resettlement policies and programmes in the United States during the past twenty-five years. The report is divided into three parts. Part One is a description of the general context in which policies and programmes have been developed. In Part Two, there is a detailed analysis of specific resettlement programmes, particularly those for Indo-Chinese, Cuban and Soviet refugees; it also includes a description of resettlement programmes of other Western governments. In Part Three, the authors present a series of recommendations aimed at improving services, strengthening governmental and voluntary agency cooperation and an expansion of research programmes. They recommend that refugees be viewed as only transitional dependent populations requiring concentrated services over an initial period and they emphasize the need for Federal legislation on refugee asylum and assistance

The border crossers; people who live in Mexico and work in the United States by David S North( Book )

5 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study investigates the characteristics of the border crossers and their role in federal programs, and analyzes their impact in depressed areas. In order to obtain information about the estimated 100,000 commuters working in the United States, a team of bilingual Mexican Americans interviewed Mexican citizens legally and illegally working in the United States, and U.S. citizens living in Mexico and crossing the border to work. Among legally working aliens, every hundredth name was selected for an interview, while the illegal workers surveyed were all those willing to be interviewed at three detention centers. Citizen commuters, for whom no lists were available, were interviewed at the American Consulate-General in Juarez, and at various border crossings. The data shows that the border crossers depress job opportunities and wage levels, and discourage union organization. Although they benefit from many federal programs, they do not pay their share of the costs of the programs. The study recommends several alternate solutions using more realistic restrictions on commuters. (Bh)

Refugee earnings and utilization of financial assistance programs by David S North( Book )

4 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper considers the earnings of refugees and their utilization of financial assistance programs, including Food Stamps and several cash assistance programs. The first section provides a summary of available data on refugee earnings, emphasizing the 1975 cohort of Indochinese refugees, on whom substantial information is available; data on later arrivals is presented as well. The data are presented in the form of statistical tables which are analyzed. The second section discusses what is known or can be estimated about the use of cash and Food Stamp programs by refugees. Factors which appear to correlate with high or low use rates are discussed. The third section considers four policy issues the United States faces in making decisions about refugee assistance utilization: (1) the nation's motivation in being concerned about Indochinese refugees' utilization of public funds; (2) the treatment of this disadvantaged group as compared to that of other disadvantaged groups; (3) the role of cash and food stamp assistance programs for refugees as compared to the role (and size) of other programs for refugees designed to make them more self-sufficient; and (4) alternative approaches to humanely reduce refugee dependence on assistance programs. The paper includes two methodological appendices which discuss: (1) the techniques used to estimate the total utilization of assistance programs, and (2) the continuing data collection and analysis problems in the resettlement field.
