Migrating north may trigger immediate health declines among Mexicans
Date:6/11/2014

border crossing for both documented and undocumented immigrants combined with the physical and psychological costs of finding work, crowded housing, limited access to health care in the United States and isolation from family members can result in rapid deterioration of immigrants' physical and mental wellbeing," said Goldman.

"Immigrants are often assumed to be resilient and in good health because they have not yet adopted unhealthy American behaviors like poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle," said co-author Anne Pebley from the California Center for Population Research at the University of California, Los Angeles. "But these results suggest that the image of the 'healthy migrant' is an illusion at least for many recent immigrants."

"These results demonstrate the high personal costs that many immigrants are willing to pay for a chance to improve their lives," said Goldman. "From a humanitarian standpoint, the health declines underscore the need for public health, social service and immigration agencies to provide basic services for physical and psychological health to recent migrants."

Given the limitations of the dataset, Goldman and her collaborators could not provide a more nuanced analysis regarding the causes of the changes in health status, but, with the availability of the third wave of data (collected between 2009-12), many of these questions can be later addressed.
