LITERATURE REVIEW RESOURCES PSY-804 Humanistic, Transpersonal and Existential Psychology PSY-804 Literature Review Resources Number Article Information Added to RefWorks? (Y or N) Bibliographic Information Bernstein, J. 2018. The U.S. immigration debate: what’s all the shouting for? Palgrave Macmillan Bus Econ 53: 141. Link Annotation The author of this research article analyzed the hidden and probable slowed GDP growth in the US economy. He logically concluded that this is due to the decline in the labor force, which was as a result of the approaching immigration policy that would significantly lead to demographic challenges; however, this may consequently complement the national macroeconomic growth. Nevertheless, this policy has resulted into anger from all walks of life because there is little evidence that supports the notion that increased migration to the country have or would have negative impacts on the incomes of US Citizens workers, and a likely net positive fiscal impact. Bibliographic Information Edwards, Ryan D. Liu, Mao-Mei. 2018. A New Look at Immigration and Employment in the U.S. since 2005. Y Link Annotation The authors of this scholarly research article, Edwards, R. D. & Liu, Mao-Mei.; reviewed and analyzed the decades long gradually increasing rise of migration into the United States of America, which is believed to be nearing its historic maximum. They assessed the fair share and contributions of the immigrants to the U.S. population and economy by focusing on specific areas that have not been generally examined as compared to other areas that have persistently been of high focus of immigration, such as the macroeconomic impacts of foreign-born individuals on the U.S. native born citizens, which is now getting a lot of attention due to the greater increase in migration to the country. In the authors’ views, and based on economic theory, shifts in immigration out labor supply, and has thereby reduced the income of U.S. natives in the short run because of the sloping downward in labor demand that has raised unemployment among U.S. native born citizens. Bibliographic Information Devadoss, Stephen, et al. 2018. US Immigration Policies and Dynamics of Cross‐Border Workforce in Agriculture. Y Link Annotation This article examines the current U.S. policy on immigration and the contentious debate that has generated so much controversies in the last few years. The authors developed a unique model to efficiently and productively analyze possible effects of tight and stringent border control and enforcement policies to streamline programs such as the “guest‐worker programs” that enables employment in a cross-border migration from Mexico to the U.S. This dynamic model developed by the authors revealed that stricter border control policies would heighten the current labor-shortage being experienced and reduce and weaken the US agricultural production. It is however the authors conclusion that a streamline of the guest‐worker program would lead to stable supply of workers on the farms with negligible impact on wages in the US. Bibliographic Information Cook, Maria Lorena, et al. 2018. Introduction to a Special Issue on the Impact of Immigrant Legalization Initiatives: International Perspectives on Immigration and the World of Work. Volume: 71 issue: 4, page(s): 807-822. N Link Annotation This article takes a critical look at the legal and integration of immigrants into US national labor markets irrespective of the demanding calls for immigration reform in the country. The authors analyzed the impacts of changes that stems from the illegal to legal status of immigrants in the workplace. Similarly, the article examines the lack of adequate attention on the US immigration literature, including policies that are responsible for immigrant legalization in and outside the country even though most countries have put measures in place that addresses such policies on regular basis. Furthermore, the article takes a look at the legalization actions of some immigrant destinations around the world, including that of Canada, Italy, and the United Kingdom. The authors also emphasized and highlights the significance of cross-national contexts so as to understand the extent of different legal programs and how they affect immigrant workers, their working environments, as well as the labor market. Bibliographic Information Griswold, D. 2018. The Benefits of Immigration: Addressing Key Myths Y Link Annotation In this article, the authors examine and discussed the US historical impartial and acceptance to immigration, which over the years has continue to enrich the country’s culture, broadened her economic opportunity, and which has been enhancing its influence around the world. The authors believe that the immigrants, through their successful integration into American society are complementary to US native-born workers and helps in raising the overall US economic productivity through innovative and entrepreneur initiatives. The research concluded that it is worth looking deeply into the historical background of the US as almost everyone in today’s America, has either immigrated from one country or another or belong to descendants of immigrants that came from different parts of the world, including England, Germany, and Ireland, and the Eastern Europe in the colonial era and others from Scandinavian countries in the 19th and early 20th centuries that makes the United States of America. Bibliographic Information Espenshade, Thomas J, et al. 1996. Contemporary American Attitudes toward U.S. Immigration. Y Link Annotation The authors of this article used it to examine the American perspectives in regard to immigration using survey and data from different credible sources including the CBS News/New York Times and a Southern California survey to analyze the impacts of undocumented migrants and illegal immigration in the United States. The survey included questions to U.S. native born citizens about their feelings and how they rate and balance the level of immigration to the country? Although several hypotheses were used to test these factors to understand which and what influenced the respondents; however, most of the views were centered on the state of the country’s economy, including feelings of social and political alienation as well as sentiments of isolation regarding foreign relations and economic issues. Bibliographic Information Nardini, AK. 2018. Economics Journal. Trump and US Immigration Policies. Lessons from the Eisenhower Administration Y Link Annotation This article examined the government’s immigration entry policies into the United States dating back to 1953 when the US became a symbol of ideological openness, which made her the designated and the unquestionable leader of a free and just world order. The article investigated and made comparisons with the current immigrations strategies of President Donald Trump. The article emphasizes the negative aspects of these strategies including the isolation of the country, the damages it is causing the economy of the country as well as the feelings of division in the country even among native-born citizens. It is the aim of the article to appeal to the Republican Party not to return back to the pre-1953 restrictions by reverting those early policies that will undo the great work that the Eisenhower Administration had undertaken. Bibliographic Information Kennedy, Andrew. 2018. Politics of Skilled Immigration Explaining the Ups and Downs of the US H-1B Visa Program N Link Annotation This scholarly reviewed article is centered around the H-1B visa program. The author examined the reason(s) behind rise and fall in the yearly program dating back from the1990s to the present-day. The article also reiterated the fact that the United States of American has always attracted immigrants with most of them skilled; however, over the years, the country’s openness and acceptance of these immigrants has become divided. While the nation focused on capital and labor, the article contends that the United States policy demonstrates a conflict between capital and citizen groups, which has significantly changed in the last 20 years. The author’s conclusion henceforth challenged the notion on skilled immigration and country’s immigration policy. Bibliographic Information Colston, E. 2018. Deportation and Detention: ICE-y and Dangerous Conditions. University of Texas. Y Link Annotation The author of this article analyzed the present US administration and the President’s campaign promises on immigration and how the policy is been delivered. Emphasis were on travel ban on Muslim countries, the proposed border wall and the deportation of 2 to 3 million illegal immigrants. The article also touched on the proposed cancellation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and the increased ICE immigration arrests/deportation of undocumented immigrants. In this article, the author investigated the building of a new $110 million ICE detention facility in Conroe, Texas that is scheduled to house up to 1,000 undocumented immigrants for deportation and the illegal immigrants seeking asylum in the United States as part of President Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration. Bibliographic Information Kim, A. 2017. Deportation Deadline. Wash. UL Review HeinOnline N Link Annotation This research study discusses the deadlines that regulates practically all facets of life in the United States law and how it controls the timeliness of any claim in the designs of statutes of limitations. The author asserts in all aspects of the law in this country, irrespective of criminal or civil contexts or claims by private citizens or the government, there is an expiration date that cuts off a plaintiff’s right to assert any claim but with an exception in the enforcement of immigration actions. The author emphasized that the U.S. government can deport immigrants even for offenses that are over several decades; due to this action, millions of law-abiding, resourceful and individuals who have been residing in the country for several decades now live in fear and threat of being deported for offenses that might have occurred decades ago. The author of this article exposes this trend while also examines the procedural deviation and inconsistencies between immigration and non-immigration law. References Bernstein, J. (2018).
