Immigration in a changing economy California's experience by Kevin F McCarthy ( )
7 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 1,461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
California and its economy continue to draw benefits from immigration. However, a combination of much larger immigration flows and major changes in the state's economic environment have increased the costs of immigration, and unless current policies with regard to immigration and immigrants are changed, the benefits the state currently receives from immigrants may not continue. International immigration to California has steadily increased over the past 30 years and has profoundly affected the state's population and economy. Some observers of these changes are seeing the extreme diversity of California's population as the harbinger of where the nation is headed in the long term. For others, California has become 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 educational and economic progress since their arrival? This book is the culmination of a comprehensive study of how immigration has changed over the past three decades. It assesses the impact immigration has had on the state's demography, economy, people, and institutions, with lessons to be drawn for other states, the nation, and even other countries

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 248 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 246 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

Immigration policies : legacy from the 1980s and issues for the 1990s by Elizabeth S Rolph ( Book )
4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 175 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

By 2010 Hispanics will constitute one-fifth of young people of high school age. However, they lag behind all other racial/ethnic groups in the rate at which they earn a bachelor's degree. The Hispanic Scholarship Fund set a goal of doubling this rate. This documented briefing examines the implications of current trends and the costs and benefits of different approaches toward meeting the goal within ten years
