immigration, poverty and socioeconomic inequalityFrom the publisher:

The rapid rise in the proportion of foreign-born residents in the U.S. since the mid-1960s is one of the most important demographic events of the past fifty years. The increase in immigration, especially among the less-skilled and less-educated, has prompted fears that the newcomers may have depressed the wages and employment of the native-born, burdened state and local budgets, and slowed the U.S. economy as a whole… In Immigration, Poverty and Socioeconomic Inequality, noted labor economists David Card and Steven Raphael and an interdisciplinary team of scholars provide a comprehensive assessment of the costs and benefits of the latest era of immigration to the U.S.

Immigration, Poverty, and Socioeconomic Inequality, by David Card and Steven Raphael, editors. New York : Russell Sage Foundation, 2013. 269 p. ISBN 9780871544988 (pbk.)
