This book examines the economic impacts of recent immigration to New Jersey. Job competition, wage depression, and fiscal impacts are three economic issues that are explored in depth. By gradually accumulating additional evidence about immigrants' economic impacts, we can develop a more comprehensive picture of the effects of immigration of U.S. society generally.
