Controlling immigration : a global perspective by Wayne A Cornelius( Book )

30 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 994 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The third edition of this major work provides a systematic, comparative assessment of the efforts of a selection of major countries, including the U.S., to deal with immigration and immigrant issues— paying particular attention to the ever-widening gap between their migration policy goals and outcomes. Retaining its comprehensive coverage of nations built by immigrants and those with a more recent history of immigration, the new edition pays particular attention to the tensions created by post-colonial immigration, and explores how countries have attempted to control the entry and employment of legal and illegal Third World immigrants, how they cope with the social and economic integration of these new waves of immigrants, and how they deal with forced migration."--Publisher's website

Importing poverty? : immigration and the changing face of rural America by Philip L Martin( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American agriculture employs some 2.5 million workers during a typical year, most for fewer than six months. Three fourths of these farm workers are immigrants, half are unauthorized, and most will leave seasonal farm work within a decade. What do these statistics mean for farmers, for laborers, for rural America? This book addresses the question by reviewing what is happening on farms and in the towns and cities where immigrant farm workers settle with their families. Philip Martin finds that the business-labor model that has evolved in rural America is neither desirable nor sustainable. He proposes regularizing U.S. farm workers and rationalizing the farm labor market, an approach that will help American farmers stay globally competitive while also improving conditions for farm workers
Trade and migration : NAFTA and agriculture by Philip L Martin( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Will the proposed North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) increase or decrease Mexican migration to the United States? Professor Philip Martin, a leading expert on migration, concludes that NAFTA will both increase and decrease pressures for Mexican migration. This study provides a balanced and careful assessment of the controversial, but surprisingly neglected, issue of NAFTA's impact on immigration and offers policy recommendations on how President Clinton should respond."--BOOK JACKET. "Although the author estimates that NAFTA will increase migration by as many as 100,000 people annually in the short to medium term, the more significant pressures to emigrate from Mexico in the 1990s will continue to come from non-NAFTA sources such as Mexican land reforms, deregulation, and privatization. Martin argues that NAFTA is necessary to prevent even greater migration over the longer term because the agreement will stimulate economic growth and job creation within Mexico, thus reducing long-run emigration pressure."--BOOK JACKET. "The author recommends that the United States reduce the existing demand-pull of US job opportunities for migrants through vigorous enforcement of labor and immigration laws and provide financial assistance to state and local governments affected by increased immigration."--BOOK JACKET

Poverty amid prosperity : immigration and the changing face of rural California by J. Edward Taylor( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the socioeconomic links among farm employment, immigration, and welfare use not only within California's Central Valley, but also along the state's Central Coast and in its southern regions. Using U.S. Census data and information collected from extensive community-level site visits, the authors find that immigration, largely from rural Mexico, is changing the face of rural California, increasing levels of population, poverty, and public service demands. The authors caution that upward mobility among these immigrant workers may be limited and that recent legislative changes are reducing the public resources available to help newcomers adjust, just as the number of immigrants is increasing."--BOOK JACKET

The new rural poverty : agriculture & immigration in California by Philip L Martin( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Immigration is changing the face of rural America, from Florida to Washington and from Maine to California. Migrants arrive, many from Mexico, to fill jobs on farms and in farm-related industries, usually at earnings below the poverty. Leaders of rural industries are adamant that a steady influx of foreign workers is necessary for economic survival. But the integration of these newcomers is uneven: many immigrants achieve some measure of the American dream, but others find persistent poverty, overcrowded housing, and crime. The New Rural Poverty examines the effect of rural immigration on inla

The endless quest : helping America's farm workers by Philip L Martin( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twelve federal migrant programs currently provide over $600 million annually to assist migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their families. Four programs (the Migrant Education Program, Migrant Head Start, Migrant Health, and job training and ancillary services under the Job Training Partnership Act) account for 90 percent of federal migrant assistance funds. Yet, these programs are engaged in a Sisyphean task because they focus on helping individuals attain a better life (outside the fields) but do nothing to reform farm labor-market conditions. This book describes the evolution and current operations of the four major migrant programs, and offers suggestions for three tiers of reform. Introductory chapters provide a history of the role of the migrant worker in U.S. agriculture, and of public policy that has perpetuated the menial conditions of the farm labor market. Program descriptions cover initial and current objectives, definition of target population, eligibility criteria, program operations, funding, current issues, and coordination with other programs. Three levels of reform are recommended: (1) over the short term, improving program coordination at the national level; (2) over the medium term, improving data on farmworkers by requiring interagency agreement on core definitions and clear assignment to a single agency of data collection responsibility; and (3) over the longer term, deliberately creating public policy that would improve conditions for migrant workers. The most effective policy step would be reducing the number of workers competing for farm jobs through enforcement of immigration and labor laws. Appendices contain the text of recommendations by the Administrative Conference of the United States on migrant program coordination and data collection; a directory of organizations and federal programs providing migrant services; data on farmworker wages, employment, and production; and a glossary of acronyms. This book contains an index and many data tables and figures. (Sv)

The U.S. produce industry and labor : facing the future in a global economy by Linda Calvin( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fruit and vegetable production is a labor-intensive process, and over half of the hired workers employed by growers are believed to be unauthorized immigrants. Reforms to immigration laws, if they reduce the labor supply, may increase the cost of farm labor. The authors of this report assess how particular fruit and vegetable commodities might adjust if labor rates increased. Analysis of case studies suggests a range of possible adjustment scenarios, including increased mechanization for some crops, reduced U.S. output for a few crops, and increased use of labor aids to improve labor productivity for others
