** The search engine works best with simple, broad searches. Instead of seaching for "what is the link between education and incarceration", search under "prisons" and see if any of the results contain information about education (which some of them do).

4. Immigrants and TANF: A Look at Immigrant Welfare Recipients (external link)
Abstract: Key findings, based on case studies of New York, Los Angeles, and Houston, show that: immigrants and limited English speakers make up a significant share of those on welfare; many have significant barriers to work including less education and work history than natives; and immigrants on welfare are less likely to be working and more likely to be working in dead-end jobs.
