One of Sagamore’s first studies, “Connecting Mexico to the Hoosier Heartland,” examined the full range of economic relations between Indiana and Mexico, paying particular attention to the movement to Indiana of Mexican workers and families, both documented and undocumented. This led to several further studies of the economic impact on Indiana of immigrants from Mexico and Latin America. Several of these studies have helped clarify for the state’s lawmakers what is at stake as they consider measures that would penalize undocumented immigrants. A critical factor for Indiana is education of newcomers and of their children. Sagamore has produced several studies of immigrants and education that have identified critical gaps between the performance of Latino and non-Latino students, and that advanced several recommendations for governmental and nongovernmental actions to close the gaps.
