Exploring and Explaining the Immigration-Crime Nexus Across Time: A Longitudinal, City-Level Analysis.

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



Abstract:

It has long been presumed that the entry of immigrant groups into the United States produces an increase in law-violating behavior. This viewpoint is evident historically in the passage of drug legislation that targeted “immigrant-linked” behaviors and can be seen currently in citizen concerns about border security. Likewise, some classic criminological theories support the view that immigration may contribute to high crime rates by breaking down informal social controls or increasing inter-group conflict. Yet contrary to the historical image of the criminally immigrant, several scholars report that immigrants have relatively low levels of involvement in crime and suggest that immigration may in fact contribute to declining crime rates in the United States. Noting the contributions and limitations of prior scholarship on this issue, the current study uses pooled cross-sectional time-series data to evaluate several competing theoretical frameworks on the nature of the immigration-crime nexus and to evaluate variation in that connection across time.
