Cybelle Fox

University of California, Berkeley

Research Initiative:

Fox will write a book on the causes and consequences of the rise of restrictions on immigrants’ access to social welfare. She will compare three seminal moments of federal policymaking when the issue of non-citizens’ access to social assistance came to the fore: FDR’s New Deal, Nixon’s legal status restrictions, and Clinton’s welfare reforms.
