Managing illegal immigration to the United States : how effective is enforcement? by Bryan R Roberts( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors examine U.S. efforts to prevent illegal immigration to the United States. Although the United States has witnessed a sharp drop in illegal border crossings in the past decade alongside an enormous increase in government activities to prevent illegal immigration, there remains little understanding of the role enforcement has played. Better data and analyses to assist lawmakers in crafting more successful policies and to support administration officials in implementing these policies are long overdue

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The New Brunswick Writing Assessment Program implemented in grades five, eight, and eleven in New Brunswick (Canada) public schools in 1978 is described in this report, which includes the specific assignments for each grade, a discussion of the general holistic scoring approach used, and characteristics of the responses at each grade, including examples. Information on the analytical scoring of a subset of responses includes comparison with scores from a similar study conducted in 1977 and information on the following items by grade: score, length in words, paragraphing percentage, words per T-unit, words per clause, clauses per T-unit, run-ons per T-unit, fragments per T-unit, nonagreements per clause, incorrect verb forms per clause, faulty pronoun reference per T-unit, case errors per clause, adjective adverb confusion per clause, and spelling error percentage. Other comparisons are given for differences among various level students and between high scoring and low scoring responses. The final section contains implications for curriculum and instruction.

Deterring illegal entry : migrant sanctions and recidivism in border apprehensions by Samuel Bazzi( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper, we use administrative records from the U.S. Border Patrol to examine how penalizing illegal border crossing affects recidivism in the apprehension of undocumented migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border. Over 2008 to 2012, the Border Patrol rolled out a Consequence Delivery System, which increased the fraction of apprehended border crossers subject to administrative or criminal sanctions from 15% to 85% percent. By matching fingerprints across apprehension records, we detect if a migrant apprehended by the Border Patrol is subject to penalties and if he is re-apprehended at a later date. Exploiting day-to-day variation in the capacity of the Border Patrol to levy sanctions during the rollout phase, we estimate strong effects of penalties on the likelihood that an apprehended migrant re-attempts illegal entry and is recaptured. Exposure to (milder) administrative penalties reduces the 3-month and 18-month re-apprehension rates for male Mexican nationals by 6.6 and 4.6 percentage points, off of baseline rates of 22.6% and 24.2%; exposure to the full set of penalties reduces these re-apprehension rates by 8.1 and 6.1 percentage points. The estimated magnitudes imply that the rollout of the CDS can account for 28 to 44 percent of the reduction in re-apprehension rates over 2008 to 2012. Further results suggest that our estimated impacts of sanctions on recidivism in apprehensions may understate the impact of sanctions on recidivism in attempted illegal entry
