Occupational Licensing and Undocumented Immigrants

AbstractUndocumented immigrants face substantial legal barriers to employment in the United States. Besides work authorization, federal law prevents states from issuing occupational and professional licenses to undocumented immigrants, potentially hampering their occupational mobility. Using a recent policy change that granted undocumented immigrants access to licenses in California, I estimate the effect of lifting these restrictions on immigrant labor market outcomes.
