Black Immigrant, U.S.-born Black, and Nonblack Immigrant Families that are poverty stricken have different negative influence on their children.   This study focuses on the well-being of children in poverty stricken families.   It is hypothesized in this study that differences in economic assimilation between black and nonblack immigrant children result from disparities in parental human capital endowments and that these endowments will have weaker implications for poverty among black immigrants than among their nonblack counterparts.
