Abstract: Facing the phenomenal surge of international migration during the past two decades, most countries are hosting a large and growing population of immigrants, a substantial number of whom are school-age children. While much prior research has investigated immigrant adolescents’ socioeconomic integration in the host country (e.g., their labor market assimilation or educational achievement and attainment), relatively less attention has been given to how immigrant children and children of immigrants understand their rights in the host country, and how they evaluate their newly found home. Further, less is known to how such immigrant adolescents’ attitudes toward immigrant rights and attitudes toward their host country differ across countries, particularly depending on a country’s immigration policy. To address these gaps in our knowledge, this study investigates cross-national differences in immigrant adolescents’ attitudes toward immigrant rights and attitudes toward their host country and how country-level immigration policy may explain, if any, such cross-national differences over and above individual-level characteristics.

Toward this end, using data from 2009 International Civic and Citizenship Education Study (ICCS), combined with immigration policy indices from 2007 Migrant Integration Policy Index (MIPEX), this study first examines the magnitude of differences in (1) attitudes toward immigrant rights and (2) attitudes toward their country between immigrant and nonimmigrant adolescents for 17 countries, controlling for other individual variables (e.g., socioeconomic status, age, gender, etc.). Second, we investigate whether the degree to which the host country’s policies for immigrant integration are exclusionary/inclusionary is related to cross-national variation in immigrant/nonimmigrant differences in these two outcome variables. Among others, we focus on four domains of immigration policies: Political participation, education, citizenship acquisition, and anti-discrimination.

Our preliminary results from the two-level hierarchical linear modeling (HLM) analyses suggest that in general immigrant adolescents are more supportive to equal rights for immigrants but less positive towards the host country compared to nonimmigrant adolescents in many countries, even after controlling for other individual-level characteristics, and that such the degree of immigrant/nonimmigrant differences in attitudes towards immigrant rights and the host country differs across countries. Further, results reveal that country-level immigration policy contexts contribute to explaining cross-national differences in attitudes toward immigrant rights and attitudes toward the host country between immigrant and nonimmigrant adolescents, even after controlling for individual-level characteristics. Specifically, we find that immigrant adolescents in countries with inclusionary immigration policies are more supportive to equal rights for immigrants and more positive towards the host country than their counterpart immigrants in countries with exclusionary immigration policies. In the full paper, we will include more sophisticate analyses, including but not limited to testing interactions between socioeconomic background and immigration status, and more fully discuss theoretical and policy implications of our findings.

Abstract: This paper analyzes newspaper coverage of immigration reform in mainstream English-language newspapers prior to, and following passage of immigration reform legislation by the US House of Representatives in December, 2005. The purpose of this project is twofold: 1) To illuminate the media’s participation in the social construction of the policy “problem” and acceptable “solutions” to it; 2) To illuminate how the social construction of the policy problem and solution contributes to the social construction of a particular group of people in America, namely Latino immigrants. The analysis presented here is based upon a qualitative analysis of a large random sample of newspaper articles published in the northeast and southwest United States during August 2005, April 2006, and October 2006. The analysis reveals both consistency and significant changes in the news coverage of immigration reform between April 2005 and October 2006. I discuss two key findings at length. First, changes in coverage between August 2005 and October 2006 portray an expansion in the terms of the debate about immigration reform that has proven significant in the course of the policy’s development. Second, while many articles fail to explain the need for immigration reform, the coverage generally portrays the problem as “illegal immigrants” from south of the US-Mexican border. This portrayal contributes to the social construction of Latinos as the Other. This project therefore enhances our understanding of the social construction of immigration policy and its subjects, and the print media’s contribution to this process.
