Political Exclusion, Immigration Enforcement, and the "Chilling Effect" on Latinos Social Service Use

a PSC Research Project

Investigators:   Francisco I. Pedraza, Edward Norton

This project will address one core question: did immigration enforcement generate a "chilling effect" on social service use among Latinos during the Great Recession? We propose tracking the "chilling effect" at the individual level and apply multi-level analysis to evaluate the relative extent to which immigration policy enforcement has unintended eects on Latino utilization of safety net programs. Our proposal speaks directly to CPI's research groups A (social service use) and D (eects of immigration policy), but has implication for understanding Hispanic poverty, generational differences in social standing, social mobility and health.

Funding Period: 01/15/2013 to 12/15/2013
