Immigration and ethnic communities : a focus on Latinos by Refugio I Rochin( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For over a decade, Latino immigrants, especially those of Mexican origin, have been at the heart of the immigration debate and have borne the brunt of conservative populism. Contributing factors to the public reaction to immigrants in general and Latinos specifically include the sheer size of recent immigration, the increasing prevalence of Latinos in the work force, and the geographic concentration of Latinos in certain areas of the country. Based on a conference held at the Julian Samora Institute (Michigan) in April 1995, this book is organized around two main themes. The first discusses patterns of immigration and describes several immigrant communities in the United States; the second looks in depth at immigration issues, including economic impacts, employment, and provision of education and other services to immigrants. Papers and commentaries are: (1) "Introductory Statement" (Steven J. Gold); (2) "Immigrants from Latin America and the Caribbean: a Socioeconomic Profile" (Ruben G. Rumbaut); (3) "Discrimination and Conflict: Minority Status and the Latino Community in the United States" (Juan L. Gonzales Jr.); (4) "The Demography of Mexicans in the Midwest" (Rogelio Saenz); (5) "Historical Foundations of Latino Immigration and Community Formation in 20th-Century Michigan and the Midwest" (Dennis Nodin Valdes); (6) "Islanders in the States: a Comparative Account" (Sherri Grasmuck, Ramon Grosfoguel); (7) "Emerging Latino Populations in Rural New York" (Enrique E. Figueroa); (8) "Immigration to the United States: Journey to an Uncertain Destination" (Philip Martin); (9) "Borders and Immigration: Recasting Definitions" (Scott Whiteford); (10) "Mexico-to-U.S. Migration and Rural Mexico: a Village Economywide Perspective" (J. Edward Taylor); (11) "Job Competition Reassessed: Regional and Community Impacts from Los Angeles" (Abel Valenzuela Jr.); (12) "The Social Organization of Day-Laborers in Los Angeles" (Daniel Melero Malpica); (13) "Unpacking 187: Targeting Mejicanas" (Pierrette Hondagneu-Sotelo); (14) "Proposition 187 and Its Aftermath: Will the Tidal Wave Continue?" (Adela de la Torre); (15) "All Was Not Lost: The Political Victories of Mexican Immigrants in Guadalupe, California" (Victor Garcia); (16) "Other Important Points" (Enrique Figueroa); (17) "What Is Needed? More Interdisciplinary Work Drawing on the Humanities" (Denise Segura); and (18) "The Different Faces and Dimensions of Immigration: a View from Midwest Reality" (Manuel Chavez).

The changing profile of the Latino population in the American Midwest, based primarily on recent Bureau of Labor Statistics and Census data, is summarized for policy makers and other interested parties. This report is intended as a reference and focal point for classroom discussion of regional social and public policy issues. A section on data source details the many sources of regional statistics beyond the major federal sources and also examines some of the problems involved with statistics on Latinos. The profile contains two regional maps, one indicating major metropolitan areas in the Great Lakes states and the other indicating the percentage of Hispanics by county in the Great Lakes states. Also included is a list of over 60 demographic highlights focusing on the following issues: (1) the changing demographic structure and growth of the Latino population; (2) changing nature of Latino families; (3) impact of economic restructuring on Latino participation in the labor force and growing economic inequality; (4) educational status of Latinos in light of post-industrial economic development; and (5) relationship between residential status and economic well-being.

Mutual concerns of farmers and farmworkers : an agenda for building partnerships in Michigan by Marcelo E Siles( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document reports on a survey regarding the needs and concerns of 51 members of grower associations, 35 seasonal farmworkers, and 74 migrant farmworkers in Michigan. The survey was conducted during the conference "Building Partnerships: Growers, Farmworkers, and Agencies United," held on December 10, 1994, in Lansing, Michigan. The age and work history of the survey participants varied: growers' mean age was 49.2 years with an average of 26.8 years of farm work, seasonal workers reported a mean age of 31.8 and averaged 15.5 years of farm work, and migrant farmworkers had an average age of 30.8 years and averaged 16.9 years of farm work. Growers reported the highest level of education with more than 50 percent having at least a 4-year college degree. Both migrants and seasonal farmworkers reported very low educational levels: 83.6 percent of migrants and 71 percent of seasonal farmworkers had not graduated from high school. The majority of the report consists of figures illustrating survey data and comments from survey participants regarding issues related to health care, housing, Head Start and day care, migrant education, adult education, employment and training, social services, employment services, availability of farm labor, labor laws, migrant legal services, civil rights, discrimination, and law enforcement. Opinions on the need for services varied widely, both between and within groups. Nevertheless, this report stresses the importance of encouraging harmonious relationships between farmers and hired farmworkers and the need for agencies to address common interests and concerns of these groups.
