Example text

Bean et al. argue that earlier conclusions that immigration exerts a negligible effect on African American labor market outcomes may be premature for several reasons. Foremost is that previous research has tended to rely on highly aggregated measures of immigration and has overlooked variations in the structural features of local labor markets likely to influence intergroup labor market competition. One way of looking at the highly aggregate methods of combining data that Bean et al. criticize is to focus on the term immigrant.

Criticize is to focus on the term immigrant. Although immigrants do enter labor markets, they seldom self-identify or organize themselves in social networks in those terms. Rather, immigrants such as Salvadorans, Haitians, Soviet Jews, and Laotians tend to form social networks with others of the same nationality. These networks play important roles in determining in what localities and for what jobs individuals actually seek and obtain work. As a consequence, for significant periods of time after entry to the host country, immigrant groups tend to congregate within areas and labor markets that already contain relatively large numbers of their counterparts.

Although the data show that all groups contain more Democrats than Republicans, there is variation among groups, with African Americans most likely to be Democrats and Asian Americans having the largest minority of Republicans. Both the Asian American and Latino groups contain substantial numbers of natives and immigrants from many national backgrounds. Political behavior and attitudes can differ across these dimensions. For example, native-born Asian Americans are more likely to identify with the Democratic Party than are Asian immigrants.
