Join Sternberg Lecture Professor Dr. Belinda Davis as she discusses immigration and the social safety net. Recent increases in immigration and the diffusion of immigrants beyond “gateway” states have changed the demographic landscape of the country.  How have these changes and attitudes toward immigration influenced public support for the social safety net? Using contemporary and historical data, we will explore how economic threat, party politics, and immigration attitudes work together to undermine support for America’s welfare programs.
