Description - Undocumented Mexicans in the USA by David M. Heer
In the past two decades, large numbers of undocumented Mexican immigrants have settled in the United States and now constitute an important component of the US population. However, due to their illegal status, information about their actual numbers and living conditions, and about the impact of illegal status on their lives, has been difficult to gather. In this book the author analyzes the results of a unique survey conducted in Los Angeles County, where an estimated 44 percent of the undocumented Mexican population lives. The survey allows the author to make explicit comparisons among the groups of undocumented and legal Mexican immigrants and to study the effects of legal status on their living conditions. The author also examines the findings of a number of other social scientists, providing a comprehensive summary of the present data on undocumented Mexicans in the United States. In his conclusion, he turns to an evaluation of policy options for incorporating this group into the US population and for immigrants.
The book will be an important resource for sociologists and other social scientists as well as for lawyers and policy experts studying the problem of illegal immigrants.
