Black v. Brown: Immigration Reform and African-American Employment

By Steven J. Kaplan

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2007

The author discusses how immigration affects African-American employment and provides suggestion for immigration reform. He argues that our history as a migrant people, as well as our fundamental texts, compel us to work for a fair solution for immigrant workers who now suffer the consequences of undocumented status. He concludes that in our consideration of fair immigration reform, we should be cautious not to be more concerned about the plight of the undocumented than we are for native-born Americans who continue to suffer.
