As the U.S. has tightened its borders and reduced opportunities for undocumented immigrants to adjust their status, the undocumented population in the U.S. has grown. This has resulted in longer stays for immigrants who may have planned to migrate only for a short period of time. As a result, the undocumented population is not only growing, but aging, and undocumented immigrants are unable to retire or access social safety-net programs. Sociologist Kristina Fullerton Rico will examine the experiences of undocumented Mexican immigrants in New York City who are aging out of the workforce. She will conduct interviews and participant observation for her study.
