    The Role of Institutions in Shaping America’s Future Demographics

    This paper examines the political and economic motivations citizens of Mexico, China and India have to migrate to the US, as well as the role that American political institutions play in determining who immigrates here.

While immigration from Mexico is in part determined by policy, there is evidence that economic and network factors matter as well.
