Horton Research on Immigrant Worker Vulnerability in the News

In December, Associate Professor of Anthropology Sarah Horton, published research in the Political and Legal Anthropology Review, finding that U.S. employers use a variety of methods to make it appear they are hiring legal workers. They can "loan" undocumented workers the identification of legal workers, or they will "mask" undocumented status with invented documents.  Ultimately, undocumented workers aren't stealing identities in order to get jobs in the U.S. nearly as frequently as they are forced by their employers to accept identities "on loan.”
