Unauthorized Immigration: Evaluating the Effects and Policy Responses
Santiago Pinto () and
Richmond Fed Economic Brief, 2018, issue January
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.
