  4. Aug 30 - Unintended DACA Benefits

    Comment: Unintended DACA Benefits -

    Earlier this year, Stanford economist Scott R. Baker published a paper that looked at the impact of the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), the law put in place to make hiring undocumented workers illegal by giving legal status to approximately 2.5 million undocumented people. He concluded that legalizing undocumented people led to a fairly dramatic decrease in crime on a national level. Should we expect the same results, which were unquestionably benefited society, from DACA? Baker compared the number of IRCA applications and crime statistics on state and county levels; he discovered that crime decreased as people gained legal status. Giving legal status to one per cent of the population equated to a two per cent decrease in crime on a per capita basis. Why? The greatest reason is obvious: the ability to join the free, open legal market means greater access to jobs and potential advancement, though certainly secondary factors also played a part. Will DACA lead to similar results? How come neither political party is talking about the impact of DACA on our society? Both seem to want to focus on the propriety or impropriety of its existence - not how it will impact our country. Share your thoughts with us at editor@ilw.com and read the full paper here.
