An Analysis of Public Opinion toward Undocumented Immigration.
Espenshade, Thomas J.; Calhoun, Charles A.
Population Research and Policy Review, v12 n3 p189-224 1993
Tests five hypotheses about attitudes toward illegal immigration and undocumented migrants using public opinion data from southern California. Data supported cultural affinity between respondents and undocumented migrants and to the role of education. Respondents' evaluations of tangible costs and benefits to themselves also influence their assessments of illegal immigration. (Contains 78 references.) (Author/MDH)
