Description of Work

The perception of the immigrant as criminal or deviant has a long history in the U.S., with many groups having been associated with perceived increases in crime and other social problems, although data suggest this is not necessarily the case. This text examines the relationship between immigration and crime by presenting key issues from both historical and current perspectives, including the links between immigration rates and crime rates, nativity and crime, and the social construction of the criminal immigrant. It is a key collection for students in immigration courses, scholars and researchers in diverse disciplines, and policy-makers dealing with immigration and border security.
