Direct Democracy Rules: Direct Democracy Shaping State Immigration Legislation

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

From 1980-2014, states have exponentially increase the number of state laws about immigration and immigrant. How do direct democracy mechanisms affect legislative behavior on state immigration laws? The current literature on immigration federalism overlooks the impact of direct democracy mechanisms on state immigration law. Using an original dataset state immigration legislation, I use cross sectional time series data to find that states with direct democracy mechanisms will pass more state immigration laws over time than states without direct democracy mechanisms. While in the process of investigating an affect on type of immigration legislation and partisan control, findings suggest that legislators in states with direct democracy mechanisms will pass more state immigration laws to attempt to stop state interest groups from appropriating the state immigration policy agenda.
