ABSTRACT
This paper presents econometric evidence showing that immigration significantly and substantially reduces the labor force participation of both African American and European American workers, and that the impact is greater among African Americans. The authors argue in favor of both targeted programs for workers who are adversely affected by immigration as well as for greater restrictions on immigration.
