The Impact of Corruption on Apprehension Level of Immigrants: A Study of the United States Immigration

Abstract

This paper demonstrates the effects of country-level corruption on the illicit behavior of individuals when in a foreign country. Using cross-sectional data from 104 different countries over the period of 2009–2011, the authors measured how people from these countries act and behave differently outside their home countries. Their findings reveal some evidence that individuals coming to the United States from more corrupt countries are more likely to be apprehended than individuals from less corrupt countries.
