Immigrants have set down roots and continue to arrive in local communities across the United States. If we want to know where immigrant families and residents are thriving (or falling behind), then quantitative analyses offer many opportunities to compare and contrast where immigrants make the most of local resources and networks (and where such opportunities remain stunted). Census, survey, administrative, and newly emerging data sources can hold important insights — if we have the tools to leverage such information in order to answer pressing social questions.
Juan Pedroza, assistant professor of sociology at University of California, Santa Cruz, will present this lecture on his work about the changing landscape of immigration in the United States. Over the past decade, he has examined the vast inequalities of immigrants' access to justice, the social safety net, poverty, and segregation. His research examines how and where deportation and enforcement initiatives exacerbate these inequalities and leave imprints in our local communities.
This lecture is a part of the Migrations Summer Pathways program.
