Angela Garcia

Angela S. García is a sociologist and Assistant Professor in the School of Social Service Administration.  Her research interests include international migration, law and society, race and ethnicity, urban sociology, social policy, and mixed and comparative methods.  García studies the consequences of socio-legal inclusion and exclusion for undocumented immigrants in the United States, Spain, and Latin America. Focusing on subnational (state and local) immigration laws and executive administrative action, she charts how immigrants’ everyday lives, incorporation, and well-being are shaped by the legal contexts in which they reside.
