The Economic and Fiscal Consequences of Immigration Book Review:

The Economic and Fiscal Consequences of Immigration finds that the long-term impact of immigration on the wages and employment of native-born workers overall is very small, and that any negative impacts are most likely to be found for prior immigrants or native-born high school dropouts. First-generation immigrants are more costly to governments than are the native-born, but the second generation are among the strongest fiscal and economic contributors in the U.S. This report concludes that immigration has an overall positive impact on long-run economic growth in the U.S. More than 40 million people living in the United States were born in other countries, and almost an equal number have at least one foreign-born parent. Together, the first generation (foreign-born) and second generation (children of the foreign-born) comprise almost one in four Americans. It comes as little surprise, then, that many U.S. residents view immigration as a major policy issue facing the nation. Not only does immigration affect the environment in which everyone lives, learns, and works, but it also interacts with nearly every policy area of concern, from jobs and the economy, education, and health care, to federal, state, and local government budgets. The changing patterns of immigration and the evolving consequences for American society, institutions, and the economy continue to fuel public policy debate that plays out at the national, state, and local levels. The Economic and Fiscal Consequences of Immigration assesses the impact of dynamic immigration processes on economic and fiscal outcomes for the United States, a major destination of world population movements. This report will be a fundamental resource for policy makers and law makers at the federal, state, and local levels but extends to the general public, nongovernmental organizations, the business community, educational institutions, and the research community.

Black Identities Book Review:

The story of West Indian immigrants to the United States is generally considered to be a great success. Mary Waters, however, tells a very different story. She finds that the values that gain first-generation immigrants initial success--a willingness to work hard, a lack of attention to racism, a desire for education, an incentive to save--are undermined by the realities of life and race relations in the United States. Contrary to long-held beliefs, Waters finds, those who resist Americanization are most likely to succeed economically, especially in the second generation.

An Immigrant s Journey to Medicine Book Review:

My name is Abdullah Ghali and I am a first year Medical Student at The University of Texas Health Center, located in San Antonio, Texas. In 2014, I moved to the United States from Jordan to pursue an education in medicine. In 2018, I graduated from Baylor University with a Bachelor's of Science in Biology.Upon examining the literature, I realized there was a lack of personal memoirs of immigrants coming to study in the United States. Therefore, I decided to write this book in the hope of giving detailed accounts of what it felt like studying as an immigrant. With the constant discussion of immigration in the United States, I realized how valuable personal reflections would be. While in some parts it may seem that I am constantly criticizing my experience, these insights are by no means about me degrading my experience here in the United States. I absolutely love every part of my development not only in terms of academics but also in my character. I cherish every single struggle and moment that has allowed me to become where I am today. While I am currently a medical student and would love to help anyone by providing insight to gain an acceptance to a United States medical school, this book does not go about the exact methodology of how I did so. It is meant for any person to be able to pick up and read. The language is very simple; however, I attempted to detail my experiences as much as possible. The main goal is to allow the reader to live through the experiences.I did add my essays at the end of the book, however, for those who bought this book with the hope of getting any insight on the mindset of undergraduate student wanting to go to medical school. I added my personal statement as well as detailed experiences of my volunteering, organizational experiences and some awards I won along the way. For those who are interested in pursuing an education in medicine, I would like to congratulate on you choosing, what I believe, the most rewarding and vital profession existent. If I could offer two quotes that have been the recurring themes in my journey, I would choose these: "Knowledge is to know tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is to know not to put it in a fruit salad" Miles Kington"However, to save a life would be as great a virtue as to save all of mankind. "- Quran 5:32While this may be a cliche, it is very important to know why you are wanting to become a doctor. That reason has to be strong enough to get you through the endless nights of hard work that this journey at times will demand. I find it very rewarding to listen to other people's reasons as it inspires me and allows me to develop mine. The path to medical school is a very unconventional road for international students as most people will finish their medical education overseas and then do their residency in the US. In my opinion, I would highly recommend going through the longer and more strenuous process of gaining an acceptance at a United States medical school after pursuing a United States bachelor's degree because there is an overall uplifting and maturing process that the medical system instills in its candidates that I find very unique. The venue to reach out to the stars, pursue high reaches in terms of expanding on one's knowledge and following one's passion is very highly encouraged in the United States. The diversity not only in the patient population but also within the colleagues you will develop will enrich your experience still further. I would like to thank Naser Ghali, Lara Ghali, Mohammed Ghali, Wafaa Al-Hindi, Qayss Al-Sayyad, Kathryn Harrington and Nick Logan, as well as many of my other friends and family, for their contributions to my medical journey.

Foreign Practices Book Review:

When the CBC organized a national contest to identify the greatest Canadian of all time, few were surprised when the father of Medicare, Tommy Douglas, won by a large margin: Medicare is central to Canadian identity. Yet focusing on Douglas and his fight for social justice obscures other important aspects of the construction of Canada's national health insurance - especially its longstanding dependence on immigrant doctors. Foreign Practices reconsiders the early history of Medicare through the stories of foreign-trained doctors who entered the country in the three decades after the Second World War. By making strategic use of oral history, analyzing contemporary medical debates, and reconstructing doctors' life histories, Sasha Mullally and David Wright demonstrate that foreign doctors arrived by the hundreds at a pivotal moment for health care services. Just as Medicare was launched, Canada began to prioritize "highly skilled manpower" when admitting newcomers, a novel policy that drew thousands of professionals from around the world. Doctors from India and Iran, Haiti and Hong Kong, and Romania and the Republic of South Africa would fundamentally transform the medical landscape of the country. Charting the fascinating history of physician immigration to Canada, and the ethical debates it provoked, Foreign Practices places the Canadian experience within a wider context of global migration after the Second World War.

Facilitating Health Communication with Immigrant Refugee and Migrant Populations Through the Use of Health Literacy and Community Engagement Strategies Book Review:

The increasingly diverse ethnic composition of the United States population has created a profound and ongoing demographic shift, and public health and health care organizations face many challenges as they move to address and adapt to this change. To better understand how the public health and health care communities can meet the challenges of serving an increasingly diverse population, the Roundtable on Health Literacy conducted a public workshop on facilitating health communication with immigrant, refugee, and migrant populations through the use of health literate approaches. The goal of the workshop was to identify approaches that will enable organizations that serve these ethnically and culturally diverse populations in a manner that allows all members of these communities to obtain, process, and understand basic health information and the services needed to make appropriate health and personal decisions. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.

Communities in Action Book Review:

In the United States, some populations suffer from far greater disparities in health than others. Those disparities are caused not only by fundamental differences in health status across segments of the population, but also because of inequities in factors that impact health status, so-called determinants of health. Only part of an individual's health status depends on his or her behavior and choice; community-wide problems like poverty, unemployment, poor education, inadequate housing, poor public transportation, interpersonal violence, and decaying neighborhoods also contribute to health inequities, as well as the historic and ongoing interplay of structures, policies, and norms that shape lives. When these factors are not optimal in a community, it does not mean they are intractable: such inequities can be mitigated by social policies that can shape health in powerful ways. Communities in Action: Pathways to Health Equity seeks to delineate the causes of and the solutions to health inequities in the United States. This report focuses on what communities can do to promote health equity, what actions are needed by the many and varied stakeholders that are part of communities or support them, as well as the root causes and structural barriers that need to be overcome.

Immigration as a Social Determinant of Health Book Review:

Since 1965 the foreign-born population of the United States has swelled from 9.6 million or 5 percent of the population to 45 million or 14 percent in 2015. Today, about one-quarter of the U.S. population consists of immigrants or the children of immigrants. Given the sizable representation of immigrants in the U.S. population, their health is a major influence on the health of the population as a whole. On average, immigrants are healthier than native-born Americans. Yet, immigrants also are subject to the systematic marginalization and discrimination that often lead to the creation of health disparities. To explore the link between immigration and health disparities, the Roundtable on the Promotion of Health Equity held a workshop in Oakland, California, on November 28, 2017. This summary of that workshop highlights the presentations and discussions of the workshop.

From Generation to Generation Book Review:

Immigrant children and youth are the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population, and so their prospects bear heavily on the well-being of the country. However, relevant public policy is shaped less by informed discussion than by politicized contention over welfare reform and immigration limits. From Generation to Generation explores what we know about the development of white, black, Hispanic, and Asian children and youth from numerous countries of origin. Describing the status of immigrant children and youth as "severely understudied," the committee both draws on and supplements existing research to characterize the current status and outlook of immigrant children. The book discusses the many factors--family size, fluency in English, parent employment, acculturation, delivery of health and social services, and public policies--that shape the outlook for the lives of these children and youth. The committee makes recommendations for improved research and data collection designed to advance knowledge about these children and, as a result, their visibility in current policy debates.

Silent Travelers Book Review:

Traces the American tradition of suspicion of the unassimilated, from the cholera outbreak of the 1830s through the great waves of immigration that began in the 1890s, to the recent past, when the erroneous association of Haitians with the AIDS virus brought widespread panic and discrimination. Kraut (history, American U.) found that new immigrant populations--made up of impoverished laborers living in urban America's least sanitary conditions--have been victims of illness rather than its progenitors, yet the medical establishment has often blamed epidemics on immigrants' traditions, ethnic habits, or genetic heritage.

Immigration Policy and the Search for Skilled Workers Book Review:

The market for high-skilled workers is becoming increasingly global, as are the markets for knowledge and ideas. While high-skilled immigrants in the United States represent a much smaller proportion of the workforce than they do in countries such as Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, these immigrants have an important role in spurring innovation and economic growth in all countries and filling shortages in the domestic labor supply. This report summarizes the proceedings of a Fall 2014 workshop that focused on how immigration policy can be used to attract and retain foreign talent. Participants compared policies on encouraging migration and retention of skilled workers, attracting qualified foreign students and retaining them post-graduation, and input by states or provinces in immigration policies to add flexibility in countries with regional employment differences, among other topics. They also discussed how immigration policies have changed over time in response to undesired labor market outcomes and whether there was sufficient data to measure those outcomes.

Contagious Communities Book Review:

Contagious Communities looks at migration, medicine, race, and politics in post-war Britain from a new angle - through the lens of medical policy-making, health education, and clinical research. It explores the ways in which mass immigration changed British medicine and health services, and how medical claims about the migrants influenced popular and political responses to them (and their children). From smallpox to tuberculosis, from rickets to sicklecell anaemia, how and why did concerns about migrant health influence migration policy and domestic politics? If the NHS was a magnet for migration from around the world, was this because it offered universalaccess to the best of modern medicine, or because of its voracious appetite for healthcare workers at every level? Sifting evidence from government files, medical reports, the popular press, and oral history, Contagious Communities sheds new light on one of the most contentious questions of our day: the impact of immigration on modern Britain.
