Discussion 1

Go the website of the Migration Policy Institute and read “Mexican Immigrants in the United States” here: https://www.migrationpolicy.org/article/mexican-immigrants-united-states-5 Why do you think so many Mexicans reside in border states and especially California and Texas?

Then, read the Bureau of Justice Statistic’s report, “Felony Defendants in Large Urban Counties, 2006—Statistical Tables.” Examine table 5. For which crimes are Latinos overrepresented among criminal defendants in the nation’s largest counties? What explains this?
