The Impact of Immigration-related Challenges and Deportation Worries on the Well-being of Latinos in the U.S.

Increased public awareness of immigration issues creates challenges for Latinos and the deportation of undocumented immigrants in record numbers is a source of worry in the Latino community in the U.S. Very few studies have examined how the preceding factors impact the lives and outlook of Latinos-specifically their quality of life, their confidence in the future, and their situation in the U.S. Using large nationally representative data, it was found that the challenges posed by increased public awareness of immigration issues and the worries associated with immigration indeed negatively affected the lives and outlook of Latinos. It was found that challenges and worries had independent and additive effects on the dependent variables. Further, deportation worries affected quality of life and/or situation in the U.S. for Latinos who were citizens and non-citizens.
