Seminario IECON: "Understanding the Effects of Legalizing Undocumented Immigrants"

Presenta Javier Vázquez (Universitat de Barcelona- IEB)  en coautoría con J. Monras y F. Elias

Resumen

This paper studies the legalization of 600,000 immigrants by the unexpectedly elected Spanish government following the terrorist attacks of 2004. We estimate that each legalized immigrant increased payroll-tax revenues by 4,801 euros. This takes into account both the direct impact of legalized immigrants and heterogeneous labor-market effects. The paper documents how the policy change deteriorated the labor-market outcomes of a selected group of low-skilled natives, improved the outcomes of high-skilled workers, and how some low-skilled immigrants moved away from high-immigrant locations. Taking into account both selection and internal migration is crucial to understand the consequences of amnesty programs fully.
