This paper examines the effects of illegal immigration with two groups of workers, skilled and unskilled. Data is analyzed and shown that although illegal immigration is a boon to a country as a whole, there are distributional effects, whose sign is in general ambiguous. This is because all sources of income of both groups are affected and some of these changes tend to move income in opposite directions. Most of the calibration results are analyzed in a small open economy version of the basic model. These results remain robust when extended to allow endogenous skill acquisition.
