The book is about the perceived correlation between immigration and unemployment among native workers, particularly African Americans. 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.

Immigration has significant consequences for all Americans, but especially for African Americans. The sheer magnitude of immigration - it is the primary factor driving population growth - is so large that it directly or indirectly affects the economic, political, social, and environmental circumstances of most Americans

Immigration has major results for all american citizens, yet specially for African Americans. First released in 2017. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an Informa company. Additional info for The Impact of Immigration on African Americans.

2. Are African Americans actually being displaced by new undocu-mented immigrant workers, or are domestic and immigrant low-wage workers seeking different jobs for cultural or other reasons?

National Academy Press. The New Americans: Immigrants and Transnationals at Work. Rowman & Littlefield. We can always refer to history to find out which old-fashioned American cultural "artifacts" have immigrant roots. As one example, in his book A Different Mirror: A History of Multicultural America, Ronald Takaki writes: The signs of America's ethnic diversity can be discerned across the continent. Chinatown, Harlem, South Boston, the Lower East Side, places with Spanish names like Los Angeles and San Antonio or Indian names like Massachusetts and Iowa.

The issue of the impact of immigration on black Americans has long been debated. During the previous great wave of immigration at the turn of the last century, most black leaders such as . Dubois, Booker T. Washington and A. Phillip Randolph felt that immigration harmed their community. Job competition has traditionally been the key issue, but other concerns exist as well. For example, the strain illegal immigration may create on public services may be particularly problematic for African Americans because, in many cases, schools and hospitals in some black areas are already stressed. There is also concern that by increasing demand, illegal immigration may drive up costs for low-income rental housing.

Immigration has significant consequences for all Americans, but especially for African Americans.áThe sheer magnitude of immigration--it is the primary factor driving population growth--is so large that it directly or indirectly affects the economic, political, social, and environmental circumstances of most Americans.áBut the geographic concentration of immigrants in urban areas, and the economic concentration of immigrants in the low-wage sector of the labor market, have special consequences for African Americans since they are especially likely to live in urban areas and to be low-wage workers.

These effects can be both negative and positive. Immigration has sharply increased the supply of labor into the low-wage sector of the labor market, which tends to reduce wages and employment opportunities for low-wage native workers. Employers may prefer hiring immigrants, who are perceived to be hard working and uncomplaining, to hiring African Americans. Immigrants can also increase the competition for scarce public services (especially education) on which African Americans depend. Yet immigration can also stimulate economic growth and urban revitalization, which can increase job opportunities and spread an ideology of multiculturalism. Immigration can dilute the political power of African Americans, but it can also strengthen the civil rights coalition. Immigration can benefit some groups while hurting others.

This volume presents research and analysis that reflects and advances the debates about the economic and political consequences of immigration for African Americans.
