Abstract
  • There are record numbers of immigrants in the U.S., with no indication of declining in the future. Social debates surrounding issues such as immigration are fragile. It is critical that research and knowledge put out to the public and used by policy makers to create or reform immigration legislation must accurately portray the societal facts. This research explores the relationship between anomie and deviance, using immigration as the measurement for anomie and crime as the measurement for deviance. Data measured at the census tract level came from the 2010 U.S. Census and 2009-2011 Uniform Crime Report for Tucson, Arizona. Using an OLS regression model, the results from this research find a statistically significant relationship (p < 0.05) between anomie and deviance, after controlling for young males, poverty, and ethnicity, three factors known to affect crime.
