The Swift Rise and Fall of Immigrants' Social Rights in the United States
2007 (English)In: Annual Meeting of the American Political Science Association, 2007Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
The paper attempts to explain the unusual trajectory of immigrants' social rights reflected in the contradictory pattern of development, the peculiar connection between means tested and social insurance benefits, and the extraordinary disentitlement of immigrants with legal residence status in the 1990s. To understand these developments, the paper highlights 1) framing, 2) policy venues and their institutional dynamics, 3) the territorial dimension of immigrant policy, 4) patterns of coalition building and 5) the nature of ethnic and immigrant mobilization and political penetration.
