Q. I am also looking for any articles speaking on illegal immigrants receiving welfare benefits undocumented

for a paper on how in the last four years undocumented have taken American jobs from American citizens


Thank you for contacting the Argosy University Library.

To locate peer-reviewed articles on your topic, I recommend performing a search using Academic Search Complete or ProQuest Central. Click the Find Articles and More button from the library homepage to locate the links to these two resources.

Below are some suggested search terms:

  • immigrant
  • welfare

Even though you are looking specifically at the undocumented immigrant population, I found that the search yielded better results by entering in the general term of "immigrant" rather than "illegal immigrant" or "undocumented immigrant".

In addition to the search, you can try visiting the Center for Immigration Studies website. The organization is a non-partisan, non-profit, research organization that will provide you with unbiased information on immigration. This article in particular seemed very relevant: http://cis.org/Cost-Welfare-Immigrant-Native-Households.

If you have any additional questions, please let us know.
