"Hurricanes drive immigraion to the US" - The Conversation. 09/15/2017.

How will the recent hurricane destruction in the Caribbean, Mexico and the US impact immigration to the US? Parag Mahajan and PSC's Dean Yang examine hurricane-induced migration to the US, developing a model of the conditions under which hurricanes will increase it. Their work highlights the important roles played by family reunification immigration policies and the presence of migrant communities in the US that can take advantage of these policies.
