"The stuff that they're actually doing is not so much restricting skilled immigration as enforcing the law," said Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies, which supports reducing immigration. "They're rolling back some of the extralegal measures that other administrations have taken." A ...
As part of Holy Week, over a thousand Central American illegal aliens set out to complete a "Stations of the Cross", traversing through Mexico, to reach the United States' southern border. Upon arrival, they hope to make asylum claims. The caravan, marching under the slogan "Migrantes en la ...

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee, has written to the Department of Homeland Security with a series of tough questions about how it handles the Optional Practical Training program (OPT) and how it regulates suspected visa mills. Visa mills are ...
The U.S. Department of Justice asked the U.S. Census Bureau on December 12, 2017, to add a question on citizenship to the 2020 decennial Census. Since 1850, the Census Bureau has collected data on the foreign-born population. The 1950 Census was the last time the Bureau asked such a ...
"It may draw all these people, or some fraction of these people, into the labor force," posited Steven Camarota, research director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which supports curbs on immigration. Indeed, more people would do blue-collar work they now shun if wages were higher -- but not ...
On 15 February 2017, The Center for Immigration Studies -- a nonprofit research organization that advocates for a future United States that "admits fewer immigrants but affords a warmer welcome for those who are admitted" -- published a report arguing that a southern border wall might pay for ...

In July, the Center for Immigration Studies released an analysis on 2016 H-2B data showing the number of H-2B certified workers by state and by worksite and the locations of employers of large numbers of H-2B workers and high-wage H-2B workers. This blog updates that information and notes ...
And that's still not a full summation of the costs involved, since it does not include the equipment border agents will use to apprehend immigrants, or the legal costs associated with convicting, jailing, or deporting those border-crossers. Will the wall pay for itself? The Center for Immigration Studies claims ...
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach put on the witness stand a researcher from a national center that the Southern Poverty Law Center labels a hate group. The witness, Steve Camarota of the Center for Immigration Studies, strongly rejected any suggestion of racism during a federal trial Monday ...
Let's consider the difference between the AP's decision to ban use of the term "illegal immigrant" except in a direct quotation and its January story that described Mark Krikorian as the head of "the far-right Center for Immigration Studies." To understand the double standard that accepts the "far-right" label for ...
I am all for the termination of Temporary Protected Status for various populations, such as those from Central America, but suggest that we create a silver parachute for the returnees, not only to ease their return, but to soften the terms of the debate. We will be told about how the returning TPS beneficiaries ...
The president, going clear back to his election campaign, has been adamant about the need for a wall — a physical barrier as impregnable as humanly possible — to protect our southern border from the constant inflow of illegal aliens, narcotics, and contraband, while at the same time impeding the ...
In past weeks, there has been an increasingly strident debate over immigration "reform", particularly in the Senate, which has repeatedly exhibited paralysis (because of self-imposed filibuster and cloture rules requiring 60 votes to get anything done, rather than a simple majority). The impasse has led to ...
The White House immigration outline was released today and it's not good. It could change tomorrow, for all we know, but as it stands now, this is a preemptive surrender on several issues. The enforcement component is fine, as far as it goes – there's no E-Verify, but the White House decided months ago ...
The Department of Justice issued letters yesterday to 23 jurisdictions, including three states, warning them that they appear to be in violation of federal law. These jurisdictions are at risk of losing over $53 million in federal law enforcement funding unless they reverse their sanctuary policies. The specific ...
Readers of these pages have learned that the Diversity Visa Lottery has produced immigrants with modest human capital, has set in motion chain migration where it was unknown before, and has brought us a terrorist or two. So say the critics of the program, but what, one might ask, do friends of the ...

More than 500 individuals who obtained DACA benefits that were later revoked due to criminal and/or gang involvement apparently are still living in the country and at large, according to statistics provided by USCIS to Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. These cases are 25 ...
In state and local politics there is a phenomenon called "double dipping". Well-connected pols manage to secure two or more sources of taxpayer-provided income from two or more elections, appointments, or some combination of both. For example, the same individual serving as both the mayor of a town ...
Last week I described how federal District Court Judge William Alsup had (largely) enjoined the Trump administration from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. To be specific, his order read as follows: For the foregoing reasons, defendants ARE HEREBY ORDERED AND ...
For example, a November 2012 Memorandum published by the Center for Immigration Studies reported that 130,006 aliens were deported by reinstatement, meaning that they had previously been deported and reentered illegally. The fact is, illegal reentry is common because the benefits of entering the ...
In a report issued earlier today, the Departments of Homeland Security (DHS) and Justice (DOJ) revealed that 73 percent of those who were convicted in federal courts of international terrorism-related charges between September 11, 2001, and December 31, 2016, some 402 individuals, were foreign-born.
In my work at the Center for Immigration Studies, I have tried to make the case that there are reasonable and respectable reasons to limit immigration. That is why I have frequently found President Trump's comments on the subject to be not just repugnant but destructive. And that is why I want to associate ...
... clamoring for amnesty for TPS grantees. Instead, Congress should let those who qualify adjust to permanent status, and then end the TPS program altogether, so future presidents will have to find less permanent ways to postpone deportations. Jessica Vaughan is with the Center for Immigration Studies.
On January 12, 2018, the Washington Post reported that President Donald Trump used an expletive during a closed-door, bipartisan meeting with members of Congress about proposals to regularize the status of nationals from Haiti, El Salvador, and unspecified African countries. According to the paper: Outlining a potential ...
A group of six senators has come up with what they call a "bipartisan deal" on a DACA amnesty, but judging by details obtained by the Center, the aim is actually maximum amnesty, minimum border security and no cuts to legal immigration, and not a good faith effort to reach a deal with either the House of ...
In an order issued on January 9, 2018, Judge William Alsup ordered the Trump administration to continue the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program on a nationwide basis on the same terms as the program was in effect on September 5, 2017, with three caveats: the Department of ...
I don't know anything about the military acquisition process, so beyond a general preference for our having the most lethal weapons available and for responsibility in spending, I don't venture opinions on the subject. If I were to write, say, that the Marine Corps should have held onto the 120mm ...
Fortunately for the program's solid reputation, another guest on the program was Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies. He set the clock – and the record – straight. "We had about five million illegal immigrants in 1986," said Krikorian. "About three million of them got amnesty ...
The report of the conference committee on the big tax-cut bill expected to pass Congress includes a step forward in the field of not paying illegal aliens federal dollars to stay in the United States. But additional steps are needed. The issue is the billions in Additional Child Tax Credits paid to illegal alien ...
Center for Immigration Studies Director Jessica Vaughan: “The largest growing category [of immigrants] has been chain migration”.

Tuesday night, Virginia Delegate Elizabeth Guzman (D) delivered the Spanish-language Democratic response to President Trump's State of the Union address. As expected, Guzman largely focused on President Trump's immigration policies. Del. Guzman became one of the first Hispanic women to ever be ...
One of the themes that has been driving press reports about the looming government shutdown is an erroneous "fact" that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is facing a March 5, 2018 deadline. For example, on January 17, 2018, Newsweek stated that a House of Representatives ...
Other than in voting and jury duty, our government routinely treats aliens as equal to citizens; both are guaranteed fair trials and freedom of speech, for instance, and that's appropriate. But what about situations in which the government, either by law or by administrative decision, treats aliens — sometime ...
Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies, said the inspections offered "a good sign" that the administration was serious about going after employers. But, he said, the administration would need to go beyond audits. "It's important for Trump to show that they're not just arresting the hapless ...
The Washington Post reports today that Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for nationals of El Salvador will not be renewed by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). According to the paper, Salvadoran nationals "will have until September 2019 to leave or seek other means to obtain lawful residency.".
As the termination date for the unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program approaches, congressional leaders continue to look for a resolution. Any resolution must take into account the cost of an amnesty for this generally low-education, low-skilled population. Dr. Steven ...
Many immigration advocates argue that immigrants have much lower crime rates than natives (see this op-ed and this paper). As my colleague Jessica Vaughan and I pointed in a paper some years ago, however, the picture is far from clear. While there are other issues, the biggest problem with studying ...
Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, D.C., think tank that advocates for restrictions on immigration, thought the jury was deliberating between second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. “I was very shocked that they bought into this idea ...
Many readers will by now know that there was a verdict on Tuesday in the trial of Ahmed Abu Khattala, the so-called ringleader of the 2012 murderous attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. If you know that much you also probably know that Khattala was convicted of only four of the 18 charges ...

The bad news — that federally subsidized foreign grads of U.S. colleges took 19 percent more jobs from Americans in 2016-2017 than they did the year before — is thoroughly hidden in the latest release of data from the Institute of International Education in New York. Most of the media coverage, following ...
