From the StarTribune:
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 in July that used census data, FBI data and other statistical information to rebut stereotypes about immigrants. … “An immigrant does not come here to commit crimes and get on welfare,” Rumbaut said. “They come here to work harder than native-born people do.”
