A Conversation about the Economic Effects of Immigrants on African Americans

This interesting article addresses many of the issues regarding immigration and the effect it has on African Americans.

"Gerald D. Jaynes, a professor in the Economics and African American Studies Departments at Yale University, dispels the myth that immigrants take African American jobs. In his plainspoken narrative, Jaynes cites statistical analysis on the effect of immigration on wages and native-born employment and finds the effects to be "relatively small and secondary to other causes of low wages and employment." He also points out that immigration as a whole is a net benefit to the U.S. economy." IPC, July 14, 2009.
