Dr. Carolyn Heinrich

The University of Pennsylvania Predoctoral Training Program in Interdisciplinary Research Methods for Field-based Research in Education, sponsored by the Institute for Education Sciences (IES), welcomes Dr. Carolyn Heinrich to our weekly seminar series.

Repercussions of a Raid: Health and Education Outcomes of Children Entangled in Immigration Enforcement
Presented by Dr. Carolyn Heinrich, Vanderbilt University

Interior immigration enforcement in the U.S. has rapidly increased over the past two decades, including increased Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spending as well as the revival of workplace raids under the Trump administration. We contribute to the body of research that aims to better understand the consequences of workplace immigration raids, detentions and deportations for children and families in targeted communities, including on their education, health and socioemotional well-being. We employ a mixed methods research design to investigate the effects of the sweeping April 2018 Morristown, Tennessee immigration raid on children’s health care utilization and health and education outcomes. We utilize linked, longitudinal health and education data to connect low-income parents and children in these two major domains and a quasi-experimental design to analyze the effects of the raid on those residing in close proximity to the raid. Additionally, interview data from community members and organizations in the affected area enable us to better understand how the raid unfolded and the mechanisms through which a community trauma such as this might affect children both directly and indirectly. Our results indicate negative effects across a range of health, and education outcomes for children in communities targeted by the raid, with the largest effects for children of immigrants living closest to the raid.
