Abstract or Summary
  • Low-skilled and historically marginalized migrants are often seen as a drain on society and resources, leading policy makers to enact strict border measures and integration policies that are often harmful. Given the current climate of anti-immigrant sentiment and the rise of the far right in both the United States and Europe, this study aimed to determine the strengths and weaknesses of integration on Latinos in the United States and Roma in the United Kingdom. In order to ascertain the outcomes of immigration policies in these two nations, the research conducted a series of one-one interviews with Latinos in the United States and Roma in the United Kingdom. The theory of social construction in conjunction with Deliberative Democracy was used a basis for this study. The interviews were analyzed using Inductive Thematic Analysis in order to map out common themes across migrant experiences and develop policy recommendations based on the participant’s feedback. The analysis concluded that the education of migrants and their children was the main contributing factor in their decision to migrate. Migrants with positive educational outcomes were better suited for integration, compared to migrants who struggled to obtain or complete an education, as was seen among Latino participants.
