Immigration Enforcement and Labor Supply: Hispanic Youth in Mixed-Status Families
By Joaquin Rubalcaba, Josť R. Bucheli and Camila Morales


We obtain data on ICE arrests conducted between October 2014 and May 2018 from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University. These data report the number of ICE arrests within the US interior at the month-by-county level, totaling 480,000 apprehensions over the 44 months observed in our study. We crosswalk county-level ICE arrests to their respective metropolitan statistical area (MSA) to facilitate merging these data with the CPS public use files. Thus, we capture immigration enforcement actions at the MSA-by-month level......[Citing TRAC data and research].
