"Undocumented migration to the US from Mexico: economic structure, policy options, and economy-wide impacts"
by Kabir, Kayenat and Roman Keeney

We review the literature which studies undocumented migration from Mexico to the US focusing specifically on the economic impacts measured from econometric studies of relative wage impacts. We expand the reduced form econometric estimating equations to a simplified labor supply and demand structure for undocumented Mexican immigrants in the U.S., to highlight the assumptions embodied in those estimates. From there we provide an analysis of key variables in the debate over undocumented migration under varying labor supply and demand assumptions. Finally, we close with a discussion aimed at extending the current work to a historical simulation context to better identify knowledge gaps and improve forward looking counterfactual policy analysis.
