Dolar, Veronika. Personal interview. 27 Oct. 2014.
The professor of economics at Long Island University, Veronika Dolar, received her Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota in 2010. In the interview Dolar compares the positive and the negative sides of illegal immigration, and she argues that illegal immigrants are the reason why the United States can hold up a well functional economy. However, an immigration reform is still necessary for the structure of the United States’ economy according to her. Dolar provided information and thoughts based through micro and macro economic theories, and personal experiences. Dolar answered my questions in a mixture of an objective and biased way. With objective facts and persuading personal experiences, Dolar slightly changed my perspective of illegal immigration. Compared with other sources, this interview is the only direct oral information provided. This source gives me a deeper aspect of illegal immigration’s influence of the United States economy.
