This report analyzes labor market trends in the economic recovery from 2009 to 2011. The focus is on the change in employment by race, ethnicity, gender and nativity. The report finds that, two years after the U.S. labor market hit bottom, the economic recovery has yielded slow but steady gains in employment for all groups of workers. The gains, however, have varied across demographic groups, with Hispanics and Asians, in particular, experiencing a faster rate of growth in jobs than other groups.

The Myth of "Self-Deportation"

Report Author: 
Alexandra Filindra
Original Date of Publication: 
2012 Apr

The concept of "self-deportation" rests on a deceptively simple premise. According to its supporters, if the federal government invests more in enforcing immigration laws and if states and localities take on additional immigration control responsibilities, the costs and risks of staying in the U.S. will increase substantially for undocumented immigrants. Faced with a high risk of being caught and imprisoned, "rational" undocumented residents will "give up and deport themselves," returning to their home countries rather than remaining in the U.S.
