Research Publication: Spillover Effects: Immigrant Policing and Government Skepticism in Matters of Health for Latinos In counties with high levels of immigrant policing, Latinas/os are more skeptical of government than non-Latinas/os, and this has spillover effects for public health, says Alana LeBrón, assistant professor of Chicano/Latino studies and public health at UCI. In a study published online with Public Administration Review, she and coauthors found a decline in overall trust in the government as a source of health information for Latinas/os who live in counties with high levels of immigrant policing, based on measures reported by the Secure Communities program which enhances collaborations and information sharing between local law and federal immigration enforcement agencies.
