Inmigración ilegal, aplicación de la ley en la frontera y salarios relativos: elementos de juicio sobre las detenciones en la frontera entre EE.UU. y México

  • Gordon H. Hanson
  • Antonio Spilimbergo

(Disponible en idioma inglés únicamente) En este trabajo se analizan los factores determinantes de la inmigración ilegal hacia EE. UU. desde México desde 1976 hasta 1995. El principal problema de este trabajo empírico es que las observaciones no son de la cantidad de personas que tratan de entrar ilegalmente a EE. UU. , sino del número de las detenidas en el intento de cruzar ilícitamente la frontera entre EE. UU. y México. Basándonos en un modelo simple de la decisión individual de emigrar, sugerimos la existencia de una función de detenciones, que expresa el número de detenciones realizadas en la frontera entre México y EE. UU. como función del número de intentos ilícitos de cruzar la frontera y el grado en que el gobierno estadounidense aplica la ley en la frontera.
