ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the participation of a group of labor economists and immigration experts in an April 2008 debate held by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights on the issue of immigration and race. Specifically, the Commission wanted to know the effects of the influx of new and, in particular, illegal immigrants on African American employment rates. One point the panelists all agreed on is that the level of illegal immigration to the U.S. has vastly increased the labor supply for low-wage, low-skilled jobs.
