Immigrants, Poverty and Welfare: How Do They Fare, and How Do They Affect Natives?

Immigrants, Poverty and Welfare: How Do They Fare, and How Do They Affect Natives?

This presentation features UC Davis economist Giovanni Peri discussing why immigrants from Mexico and Central America are more reliant on wages and less reliant on public safety net programs, yet are still much more likely to be poor than those born in the US.

Panelists on the topic include Kevin Johnson, UC Davis School of Law; and Anne Neville, California Research Bureau, State Library.

This presentation was part of the UC Davis Poverty Research and Policy Summit at UC Center Sacramento on April 22, 2016. For more information about the event, visit http://poverty.ucdavis.edu/summit.
