The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Economic Impact of Undocumented Workers in Minnesota.

Keilkopf, James J.

Do the benefits of undocumented immigrants outweigh the costs? To answer this question economist James K. Kielkopf analyzes six industries in Minnesota that employ undocumented workers: eating and drinking; hotels and lodging places; building services; roofing, residential maintenance, and repair; nursery, landscaping, and fruits and vegetables (selected labor-intensive agricultural industries); and meat and poultry processing. The report estimates the total value (in dollar terms and in numbers of jobs) of undocumented workers to the industries that employ them and to the rest of the state, as well as the impact on tax revenues.
