Orlando Rodriguez, Professor of Sociology at Fordham University, reviews Immigration and Crime. The book considers immigrants’ contribution to crime in proportion to their population in the United States. The studies included in the text conclude that immigrants’ involvement in crime is lesser than that of the second generation born in the United States. These studies provide further insight into the effects of acculturation and assimilation on criminal activity.
