Kristen Butcher and David Card at Princeton University found in their 1991 study little indication of an adverse wage effect of immigrants "either cross-sectionally or within cities over time." A study by Julian Simon and several co-authors released in 1993 concluded that "there is little or no observed increase in aggregate national unemployment due to immigration." Extensive research by Robert LaLonde and Robert Topel at the University of Chicago found that "immigration has a small effect on wages but virtually all of this burden falls on immigrants themselves." In other words, the surfeit of immigrants competing for jobs as nannies or in apparel factories keeps wages down in these fields.
