ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Are public fears about immigrants and crime justified? From a public safety standpoint, would proposals to reduce immigration have high returns? This presentation compares incarceration rates of immigrants and the U.S.-born, and looks at immigration growth and city-level crime rates. These findings and more will help illustrate the effects of immigrants on public safety in California. Lunch will be provided.

SPEAKER
Anne Morrison Piehl is an associate professor of economics and faculty affiliate in criminal justice at Rutgers University.
