Policy Diffusion Effect on Anti-Immigration Policy at the State-Level Politics

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Anti-immigration sentiment at the state level in the United States has strengthened since 2005. Several anti-immigration or punitive policies (bills) have been more welcomed by the citizens of several states, compared to pro-immigration policy (bills), and many bills target Latino undocumented immigrants, focusing on controlling their inflow to the states and deportation of those undocumented immigrants who already live in the United States illegally through workplace enforcement and raids.

Arizona’s anti-immigration law, SB1070, which was passed in 2010, has been at the center of public attention in terms of its legality and constitutionality and laid the foundation for anti-immigration policy and politics in comprehensively influencing and transferring several other state politics and policy-making. Since the passage of Arizona’s SB1070, at least 20 other states have already introduced or are considering introducing Arizona-style anti-immigration bills.

Through analyzing data on states which introduced or passed Arizona-style anti-immigration bill and policy in terms of factors and contexts accounting for their political and socio-economic situations, I attempt to analyze under what factors certain states follow Arizona-style anti-immigration policy, while other states show different policy stances. This research will be helpful for scholars in studying policy diffusion or transfer in the American political context.
