How population growth damages the quality of life and the environment Why immigration is not a ‘fix’ for an ageing population Why an ageing society is inevitable for the UK and the rest of the world Why health care will be affordable in an ageing society Why we should welcome an ageing society Why Europe’s low fertility is set to bounce back up Why there are no labour shortages in Europe or the UK How immigration can lead to worse pay and conditions for native workers
The current national debate on immigration policy is especially intense in California, home to one-third of the country’s immigrants. Much of this debate consists of advocates stating their views without the benefit of a nonpartisan assessment of the issue and the challenges it poses for the state. Our study provides such an assessment by examining how immigration has interacted with other d......
Congress is considering a comprehensive overhaul of the nationżs immigration laws more than a decade after the enactment of strict immigration measures. Current U.S. immigration laws mandate deportation of lawful permanent resident (LPR) parents of thousands of U.S. citizen children, without providing these parents an opportunity to challenge their forced separations. Through a multi-disciplinary analysis, this policy brief examines the experiences of U.S. citizen children impacted by the forced deportation of their LPR parents and proposes ways to reform U.S.

After reading chapter 21, you should be able to: Describe the extent of legal and illegal immigration into the United States; discuss why economists view economic immigration as a personal human capital investment; explain how immigration affects average wages, resource allocation, domestic output, and group income shares; relate how illegal immigration affects employment and wages in low-wage labor markets and impacts state and local budgets; demonstrate how economics can inform current immigration discussions and attempts to reform immigration laws.
For many immigrants to the United States, limited proficiency in the English language is a formidable challenge to both economic and social integration into their new home. Immigrants who speak English poorly are more superficially foreign than others, and this may contribute to their being discriminated against by U.S. natives. Moreover, immigrants with limited English proficiency might self-segregate, compounding this social and economic isolation.
Scholarly debates over immigration policy are conducted mainly in terms of
the effect of that policy on labor markets and economic measures of pro-
ductivity. Of principal concern is the fit between the labor-market needs of
a given nation and the composition of people immigrating to that country.
Debates over the displacement of indigenous workers are equally prevalent.
While the economic and labor-force implications of immigration and immi-
gration policy are important, they are not the...
The medical screening for tuberculosis among persons overseas applying for U.S. immigration status and nonimmigrants who are required to have an overseas medical examination, hereafter referred to as applicants, is an essential component of the medical evaluation. Because tuberculosis is a challenging disease to diagnose, treat, and control, these instructions are designed to detect and treat tuberculosis disease among applicants and to reduce the risk of spread of tuberculosis among the U.S. population after immigration.

Several explanations may
account for the absence of an initial steep decline in incidence
rates. First, the proportion of immigrants who were
recently infected or reinfected may already have been low
at the time of immigration. Next, the risk of reactivation of
latent tuberculosis infection in these immigrants may have
been higher than previously modeled in white nonimmigrant
The very title of Jean Lau Chin's book—Learning from My Mother's
Voice—both honors her mother, a courageous woman who immigrated
to the United States from China, and indicates her mother's primary
role within the text as she describes life both in China and in the United
States, as well as her own immigration journey. It is a tribute to her
mother and other women who experienced immigration then and now.
Examining the life of one's mother often means the exploration of
geography (i.e., place), time period, and people central to her life.
This chapter describes the extent of legal and illegal immigration into the United States. We discuss why economists view economic immigration as personal human capital investment. We also attempt to explain how immigration affects average wages, resource allocation, domestic output, and group income shares. We relate how illegal immigration affects employment and discuss its impacts on state and local government budgets.

We use a unique data set to examine the return to English knowledge. Our primary focus is on Russian immigrants to Israel, but we study native Israelis as well. Understanding the role of English in this setting is important for at least three reasons.
