Mr. Mansour will present on his analysis of the first quasi-experimental evidence on the labor market effects of immigration enforcement. He and his team examined the labor market effects of Secure Communities (SC), an immigration enforcement policy which led to over 450,000 deportations. Using a difference-in-difference model that takes advantage of the staggered roll-out of SC, his team found that the policy significantly decreased the employment of likely undocumented immigrants in low-skilled occupations. Importantly, SC also decreased the employment of citizens in middle-skilled occupations. Come join your DABE colleagues to learn more about this important and topical study.
