This chapter examines international migration in the South. It focuses on the ways that the traditional low-wage labor force of African Americans deals with the influx of a new low-wage labor force — Latin American migrants. One would assume that because African Americans and Latin American migrants experience limited social and economic mobility in the region that a natural alliance would be created between these groups. But evidence points to hostility between the two groups, not collaboration.

Keywords:   African Americans, Latin American migrants, migrant workers, labor force, economic mobility
