Unauthorized Immigration: Evaluating the Effects and Policy Responses

Santiago Pinto () and Timothy Sablik

Richmond Fed Economic Brief, 2018, issue January

Abstract: Immigration has been the subject of intense debate recently in the United States and in Europe. Economists have studied unauthorized immigration to better understand what motivates immigrants to move and what effects they have on domestic workers and the domestic economy. Incorporating this research into a model suggests that centralized enforcement of immigration policies may be more effective than a decentralized approach.
