Immigration in a changing economy : California's experience by Kevin F McCarthy( )

7 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 1,799 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Steadily increasing immigration to California over the past thirty years has profoundly affected the state. Some observers of these changes see the extreme diversity of California's population as the harbinger of where the nation is headed in the long term. Others see California as the symbol of a major backlash against immigrants and immigration. How has California benefited from immigration? What impact have immigrants had on the state's job market? How have they affected the demand for federal and state services? What has been their education and economic progress since their arrival? This book summarizes the findings of a comprehensive study fully documented in Immigration in a Changing Economy: California's Experience, by Kevin F. McCarthy and Georges Vernez. Using a question-and-answer framework, it discusses the impact immigration has had on the state's demography, economy, people, and institutions, drawing lessons for California's future as well as for other states and the nation

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the proceedings of a conference on the International Effects of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA) held in Guadalajara, Mexico, in May 1989. Sponsored by The RAND Corporation and The Urban Institute, the conference was attended by scholars and public officials from Mexico, the United States, and Canada who addressed the effects of IRCA in four areas: illegal immigration, U.S.-Mexico relations, Mexico, and the West Indies and inter-American relations. Each area was the basis of a working session whose presentations and discussions are summarized in the report. Also included are opening and closing speeches and 11 of the resource papers that were presented at the working sessions. The conference was part of the ongoing Program for Research on Immigration Policy, which was established by the two host organizations to provide analysis that will help inform policies on immigration and immigrants
Newcomers in American schools : meeting the educational needs of immigrant youths by Lorraine McDonnell( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this report, the authors examine the schooling needs of immigrant students, assess how well these needs are currently being met, and suggest strategies for improving schooling outcomes for immigrants. The study analyzes immigrant education from a broad policy perspective, explicitly considering it as a political issue in competition for policymakers' attention and scarce public resources and as one of many challenges facing increasingly overburdened local school systems. Study data were collected from a purposive sample of nine school districts and 57 schools. Both on-site and telephone interviews were conducted with 240 district and school administrators, teachers, counselors, and community representatives. Four major conclusions emerged from the research: 1) Although they represent only a fraction of the nation's youth, immigrants constitute a growing proportion of that cohort and are heavily concentrated in a few areas of the country; 2) immigrant education is not a visible policy issue. Independent of their need to learn English and to escape the consequences of poverty, immigrant students are not viewed by federal and state policymakers as a distinct group requiring unique policy remedies--that immigrants may have different needs than native-born students is not widely recognized nor accepted; 3) the quality of schooling that immigrant students receive largely depends on the capacity of the local communities in which they reside. Yet most of these districts and schools lack the human and fiscal resources to educate students well, whether they are immigrant or native-born; and 4) immigrant students have unmet educational needs that are unique to their newcomer status. But the best way to help immigrant students is to strengthen the school systems that serve them, not to create new categorical programs that single out immigrants for special benefits

Goal : to double the rate of Hispanics earning a bachelor's degree by Georges Vernez( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The level of education Hispanics achieve will largely determine whether their role is commensurate with their demographic importance and whether they partake in the full benefits of living in the United States. Doubling the rate of Hispanics earning a bachelor's degree will have both public benefits--revenues saved in public welfare, health, and law enforcement program and revenues earned from increased taxes and contribution to Medicare and Social Security--and private benefits in terms of more disposable income. Within 13 to 15 years, the public can recoup its investment in higher education for Hispanics at a benefit-to-cost ratio of 2 to 1, and 4 to 1 if private benefits are included. Among this book's recommendations: Raise public awareness of the need for greater investments in postsecondary education; pay as much attention to keeping students in college as is currently given to preventing high school dropouts; increase the capacity of the nation's postsecondary institutions, especially in those states with high concentrations of Hispanics; coordinate interventions across all levels; and support expansion of high school-, community-, and college-based programs for at-risk students
Immigration policies : legacy from the 1980s and issues for the 1990s by Elizabeth S Rolph( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, the second yearbook published by the RAND and Urban Institute Program for Research on Immigration Policy, focuses on the policy instruments that have shaped and will shape the size and composition of immigration flows. It outlines the context for the unprecedented amount of immigration legislation enacted during the 1980s; documents the material provisions of three major immigration statutes (the Refugee Act of 1980, the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, and the Immigration Act of 1990); describes the immediate effects of the statutes on the characteristics of immigrant flows; and examines the implications of these consequences for the current immigration policymaking agenda. 58 pp

The mixed economic progress of immigrants by Robert F Schoeni( )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the midst of large increases in immigration, a relative deterioration in the level of education of immigrants, and slow employment growth, the question of how immigrants perform and progress economically in the United States has once more become salient. This report addresses this question in several unique ways. First, it examines in detail the differences in the rate of economic progress of immigrants from different countries of origin (rather than for all immigrants as a whole) and identifies the reasons for these differences. Second, and for the first time, it assesses whether the economic progress of recent immigrants is slower than that of previous generations of immigrants. Finally, it assesses the economic progress of immigrants in California separately from that of those in the rest of the nation, because, at 26 percent, the share of immigrants in California's labor force is more than three times higher than that in the rest of the United States. Japanese, Korean, and Chinese immigrants enter with wages much lower than native-born workers', their wages increase rapidly, reaching parity within 10 to 15 years. Europeans enter with wages similar to natives' and continue to earn comparable wages. In contrast, Mexican immigrants enter with very low wages and experience a persistent wage gap. Although education is a powerful predictor of earnings and explains some of the disparities in earnings, a substantial difference still exists in earnings profiles between certain immigrant groups and those of native-born workers after differences in education have been adjusted for. Whereas educational attainment may influence the level of earnings at a particular point in time, and it may also enhance the rate of growth of earnings over an immigrant's lifetime, the findings from the study were mixed. Finally, the rate of wage growth has not accelerated for any immigrant groups. Although not problematic for some groups, this finding suggests that the persistent wage gap experienced by, for example, Mexicans and Central Americans, may not diminish in the foreseeable future
