CJ 461 Youth Immigration and Crime

This course will provide an overview of sociological and criminological theories that either support or reject a link between criminality and immigration, especially as it relates to different generation of immigrants and their children. More importantly, it will provide an in depth overview of empirical evidence to assess this claim. The wealth of available evidence suggests that, although there are generational differences among immigrant groups, the link between immigration and crime is little more than a persistent myth and that the children of immigrants are actually less crime prone than their native counterparts.
