Being again at liberty, I went on, as before, in the work of the Lord, passing through the country into Leicestershire, having meetings as I went; and the Lord's Spirit and power accompanied me. As I was walking with several Friends, I lifted up my head and saw three steeple-house spires, and they struck at my life.
This research question guides the three papers included in the present dissertation. To explore this question I designed and implemented a multi-city survey in the United States the American Cities Survey which contains representative immigrant, black, white, Latino and Asian samples drawn independently for each locality.
Based on the findings of the American Cities Survey, which include multiple attitudinal, cultural background and political behavior measures at the individual level, along with socioeconomic and demographic measures in six distinct local institutional environments, I argue that all voting eligible immigrants and immigrant communities-regardless of their native origin and their ancestral religious affiliation-- are willing and able to integrate politically so long as political institutions and contexts especially local ones provide them with the same exposure to the political system and institutions, and opportunities to participate in politics as the ones provided to all other citizens.
I thereby challenge both the academic and popular perceptions that certain immigrant groups have anti-democratic and anti-liberal attitudes due to their shared cultural characteristics i.
I discover that the notion that Latinos vote less than similarly situated blacks and whites has persisted overtime for two reasons: This is problematic for studying groups like Latinos, because 50 percent of their population is concentrated in three states and less than ten cities.
I find that the results found at the national level are not replicable at the local level and Latino political participation varies by city.
In localities where institutions provide incentives for political party competition the probability of a citizen of Latino origin voting is equal to that of blacks and whites of similar age, income and education.
In other words, the evidence presented here suggests that the correlation found at the national level between Latino immigrant group membership and apolitical attitudes and behavior is of a contingent, perhaps even spurious nature, artifice of geographical concentration of members of this group in local institutional environments that depress political activity.Search Results.
