ABSTRACT
This article analyses how trade liberalisation and immigration can potentially affect the welfare of native skilled and unskilled workers and how this expected impact plays on immigration policy. The novelty resides in the attempt to make endogenous immigration restrictions by integrating swing voters in a model of geographical economics with two kind of immobile workers (skilled and unskilled). It is shown that trade liberalization can lead the winner candidate to increase quota on immigration.
