From the NYT:
Mr. Ewing collaborated with Rubén G. Rumbaut, a sociology professor at the University of California, Irvine, and Daniel E. Martinez, an assistant sociology professor at George Washington University, on a study released this past July that used census data, F.B.I. data and other statistical data to rebut stereotypes about immigrants. … “An immigrant does not come here to commit crimes and get on welfare,” Mr. Rumbaut said. “They come here to work harder than native-born people do.”
