Event Details

About this lecture:

Since the beginning of the 20th century, there have been concerns raised about immigrants entering into a new country, and nowhere is this more magnified than in the United States. To this day, concerns continue and some policy makers claim that immigrants commit more crime than the native-born. This presentation will review findings from several longitudinal studies of juvenile offenders aimed at assessing the claim that immigrants (including illegal immigrants) are over-represented in offending.
