The Impact of Immigration on African Americans

The Impact of Immigration on African Americans

Nelson Lim, Adjunct Senior Sociologist at RAND, reviews The Impact of Immigration on African Americans, by Steven Shulman. The book is about the perceived correlation between immigration and unemployment among native workers, particularly African Americans. The editor argues that immigrants will push natives farther down the social hierarchy. He argues for a more restrictive immigration policy as he views the current, what he describes as “lax” immigration policy, as destructive to the economic status of low-wage African Americans.
