In so doing she considers not only immigrants, but also US minority groups. Using Current Population Survey data Glusker addresses the complex of factors: duration of stay, generational status, nativity, and race/ethnicity.

She finds that race and ethnicity affect the fertility of native-born women, independent of their socioeconomic status. This is not the case for foreign-born women. Race and ethnicity may be the central concerns as we consider future immigrant assimilation. The issue is not the fertility of immigrants per se, but of the US minorities that certain immigrant groups will join.
