Borjas study on undocumented immigrants and labor featured in Wall Street Journal

The Labor Supply of Undocumented Immigrants,”  a new study by George Borjas, revealed three key insights:

  1. Undocumented immigrant men are far more likely to work than other groups, while undocumented immigrant women are far less likely to work.
  2. The employment gap that distinguishes undocumented men from the other groups
    widened dramatically over the past twenty years.
  3. The labor supply of undocumented workers is not as responsive to wage changes as the labor supply of the other groups in the population.

The study results were featured in the Wall Street Journal.
