Parsing Immigration Policy

  • Commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Immigration Act of 1924

    23 MAG 2024 · In this week’s episode of Parsing Immigration Policy, Roy Beck, founder of NumbersUSA, joins us to discuss the 100th anniversary of the 1924 Immigration Act. President Calvin Coolidge signed it into law on May 26, 1924, and Beck outlines how, despite the various and often invidious motivations of the Act’s supporters, its effect was overwhelmingly positive for Americans of all races. Beck discusses how the 1924 Immigration Act built upon a similar bill from 1921, capping the number of immigrants that could enter each year and establishing a quota system based on national origins. He underscores how the bill was overwhelmingly supported by various sectors of society, including labor unions and Black leaders. Beck also notes that the bill’s sponsor emphasized that the main effect of the legislation was on restricting the numbers of immigrants who could enter rather than on the types of immigrants – how many, rather than who. The act led to a significant decrease in immigration, which had both positive social and economic effects. The reduced flow of immigration allowed the millions of recent arrivals to assimilate more successfully into American society. And by tightening the labor market, the bill led to increased improved worker productivity and compensation and less economic inequality. Beck underscores how “between 1924 and 1970…Americans went from a working-class nation to a middle-class nation,” highlighting how the immigration restrictions contributed to improved economic conditions for American households. To elucidate this point, Beck describes how the immigration restrictions facilitated the Great Migration of Blacks from the South, enabling them to obtain jobs in Northern cities and vastly improve their economic conditions – preconditions for the success of the later Civil Rights Movement. In his closing commentary, Mark Krikorian, the Center’s Executive Director and podcast host, discusses how Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is bringing back the Senate border bill for a vote this week. Given that the bill will not pass, Schumer’s action is little more than a political stunt designed to shift blame for the border crisis to his political opponents. Indeed, contrary to assertions by the administration and some in the media, opposition to the bill is clearly based on its substance, not simply on politics.

  • National Security Concerns Amid Rising Illegal Immigration

    16 MAG 2024 · In the latest episode of Parsing Immigration Policy, we delve into the security vulnerabilities concerning the historic and increasing number of Chinese nationals who are part of the record number of migrants crossing our country’s SW border. Our guest is Todd Bensman, the Center’s senior national security fellow who testifies today at a House Homeland Subcommittee hearing, “Security Risk: The Unprecedented Surge in Chinese Illegal Immigration.” Recent data reveals a spike in Chinese illegal immigration. In the past 35 months, more than 50,000 Chinese nationals have been apprehended by border patrol, with an additional 17-20,000 entering through the ports of entry using the CBP One app. This is up from 991 encounters in 2018, 2,060 in 2019, and 323 in 2020. The influx of nationals from China, an adversarial nation, brings a strong security concern. The Biden administration’s own DHS National Security Threat Assessment for 2024, for instance, calls China “the most aggressive actor” in U.S.-based espionage operations. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) continues longstanding espionage programs targeting U.S. government entities, research institutes, and universities. Although most of the Chinese migrants are considered to be economic migrants, the lack of rigorous vetting poses significant risks. The Biden administration has eased vetting processes, reducing the number of questions for Chinese border crossers from 40 to 5, potentially compromising national security for political expedience. This leniency creates a scenario where individuals can easily exploit the system, increasing the risk of espionage. In addition, the concern remains that they could be coerced into espionage activities by the CCP through threats to their families in China. With millions crossing the border, the security vulnerabilities are growing, and not just from Chinese nationals. On May 3rd two illegal immigrants – one a Jordanian national and the other a recent border crosser – attempted to force entry onto a Marine base in Virginia. One of the two has been revealed to be on the terror watch list, raising questions about a potential terror attack.

  • New State Immigration Laws

    9 MAG 2024 · This year has seen important state-level legislation on immigration. The bills that have passed throughout the country tend to be those designed to deter illegal immigration and enhance enforcement of immigration law. As state legislative sessions wrap up around the country, two successful grassroots advocates join Jessica Vaughan, Director of Policy Studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, to discuss immigration legislative accomplishments in their states – Georgia and Tennessee. D.A. King of the Dustin Inman Society and Joanne Bregman of Tennessee Eagle Forum highlight noteworthy new laws passed in their states this year that can serve as models for other states similarly frustrated by the lack of federal government interest in tackling the record high level of illegal immigration. - Three main types of legislation are discussed: - Making illegal presence a state crime. - Neutralizing local sanctuary policies by mandating cooperation with ICE. Limiting access to public benefits, especially professional and commercial licenses.King and Bregman emphasize the importance of grassroots efforts and legal scrutiny in shaping effective policies.

  • Panel: The How and Why of the Mayorkas Impeachment

    2 MAG 2024 · The Center for Immigration Studies hosted a panel to discuss the history and impact of the impeachment of Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas. Should he have been impeached? Why was he impeached? What are the consequences of the U.S. Senate’s refusal to either hold a trial itself or to appoint an impeachment trial committee to take and consider evidence? The panel featured Rep. Mark Green (R-TN), Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, who guided the impeachment resolution through the Committee and to ultimate passage by the House. The panel also included George Fishman, the Center’s senior legal fellow who took a leave of absence to work on the impeachment inquiry as Special Counsel for the Committee on Homeland Security and Paul Taylor, the former Chief Counsel of the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, who also served as Special Counsel for the Committee on Homeland Security to work on the impeachment inquiry.

  • Chinese Organized Crime Takes Root in Vacationland

    18 APR 2024 · This week’s episode of Parsing Immigration Policy features Steve Robinson, editor-in-chief of the Maine Wire, a digital investigative news outlet, who joins our guest host, Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies. The two experts discuss how Chinese criminal organizations have established illegal weed grows using trafficked labor of illegal aliens, and the effect on Maine communities. Robinson has been investigating this problem for months, since the existence of hundreds of rural Maine properties was revealed in a leaked federal law enforcement memo. Robinson reveals what he has learned about the Chinese drug crime operations in Maine — how they have taken advantage of Maine’s rural sanctuary environment and how they skirt all manner of laws, ordinances, taxes, and regulations, and even steal electricity, to make a profit. While state lawmakers failed in this year’s session to pass a “Little RICO” law or other measures to nip this activity, at least one small town has implemented a tough ordinance that could put some of the illegal operations out of business. But Robinson points out why state and federal authorities must also act: “The marijuana is a means to an end, and the end is funding a criminal organization,” and one that potentially represents a significant threat to our national security. As Robinson and Vaughan discuss, not only could these operations diminish opportunities and destroy the quality of life for some Mainers, they also are linked to large-scale money laundering for the Mexican cartels and to the Chinese government.

  • The State of Border Security: A Look from the Mexico Side

    12 APR 2024 · In this week’s episode of Parsing Immigration Policy, Todd Bensman, the Center’s senior national security fellow, joins us live from Juarez, Mexico. Bensman takes us into La Linea Cartel territory, where he is investigating the smuggling of dangerous criminals into the United States.  Reporting from the Mexican side of the border, opposite El Paso, Bensman offers a firsthand account of migrant activity from the area where just two weeks ago hundreds of migrants pushed past Texas law enforcement in a daring charge to reach the Border Patrol, which they know will quickly process and release them. Other migrants – especially on the west side of Juarez, opposite Democratic-run New Mexico – are “runners”, illegal aliens who do not turn themselves in because of criminal histories or warrants. Bensman witnesses the operation launched by the Mexican president to round up migrants and move them hundreds of miles south. This operation, involving hundreds of officers from across Mexico, utilizes minibuses deployed to key border areas. It forms part of a deal with the Biden administration, where Mexico has demanded $20 billion annually to address the so-called “root causes” of migration in Latin America and the Caribbean, the lifting of sanctions on Cuba and Venezuela, and the granting of amnesty to millions of Mexican illegal immigrants in the U.S. On the Texan side of the border, Bensman describes a surge in fencing construction, with miles of infrastructure being erected to deter illegal crossings. Texas authorities employ a variety of non-lethal tactics, including the use of pepper balls, to control crowds. However, despite these efforts, vulnerabilities persist, as evidenced by American contractors patching holes in the fence throughout the day, every day. In his closing commentary, Mark Krikorian, the Center’s executive director and podcast host, highlights the Biden administration once again teasing that it is going to do something dramatic to control the border. Of course, the president has always had the authority to limit who comes into the country, but has chosen not to. Host Mark Krikorian is the Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies.

  • The Size and Growth of the Immigrant Population in the U.S.

    4 APR 2024 · The starting point of any conversation about immigration should be the numbers. This week’s episode of the Center for Immigration Studies podcast highlights a recent report co-authored by Steven Camarota, the Center’s director of research, which examines the number and share of the foreign-born in the United States. The total foreign-born population, encompassing both legal and illegal immigrants, has soared to a record high of 51.4 million as of February 2024, marking a monumental increase of 6.4 million since President Biden assumed office. This increase has driven the foreign-born share to an unprecedented 15.5% of the population, eclipsing historical benchmarks like that seen in 1910 and reaching a level that the Census Bureau had estimated the country would not reach until 2039. Camarota discusses the impact of policy decisions on immigration trends, noting, “This level of growth over such a short period of time was clearly caused by policy changes.” He emphasizes that “without new policies, there is no reason to believe there will be a slowdown in population growth in the future.” The implication of these historically high numbers, coupled with the growing share of the immigration population, impacts crucial aspects of American society, including assimilation, linguistic integration, and the economy. Camarota highlights the changing demographics – greater proportion of Latin American immigrants, more illegal immigrants, and a trend towards lower educational attainment. Camarota is especially concerned about education levels, as education is a key indicator of how people will fare in the modern economy – including factors such as employment potential, salary level, taxes paid, public benefits used, etc. He also underscores the distinction between the size of the economy (GDP) and its per capita performance, discussing how per capita GDP can be adversely affected despite overall economic expansion from an increase in population. In his closing commentary, Mark Krikorian, the Center’s executive director and podcast host, draws attention to Biden’s CHNV parole program. In just 14 months, this program has permitted an estimated 386,000 foreign nationals to enter the country who have no legal right to be here and who present special security challenges.

  • Is the New USCIS Fee Schedule Fair?

    28 MAR 2024 · In today’s episode of Parsing Immigration Policy, Elizabeth Jacobs, the Center’s Director of Regulatory Affairs and Policy, does a deep dive into her https://cis.org/Report/Policy-Decisions-Embedded-New-USCIS-Fee-Schedule, set to take effect on April 1, 2024. Jacobs discusses how the 2024 fee rule is being leveraged to advance Biden's policy objectives, ignoring the requirement that USCIS fees should be commensurate with the costs of processing specific applications. As USCIS faces increased demands and backlogs, the implications of these fee adjustments extend beyond revenue generation, influencing immigration policies and pathways far into the future.Key takeaways: - Fees for immigration services for employers and entrepreneurs are set disproportionately high to offset new discounts and exemptions for other benefits, including USCIS' growing humanitarian docket. This shift in fee determination from a proportional to an ability-to-pay model is reminiscent of Karl Marx's philosophy of "from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs." - The majority of naturalization applicants will receive a significant discount, incentivizing certain voter demographics to become naturalized. USCIS will offer nearly a 50 percent discount to all N-400 (Application for Naturalization) applicants who demonstrate their household income is 400 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines or less. Depending on size, a household income of as much as $124,800 annually would qualify for this discount. Jacobs estimates that roughly 65 percent of green card holders would qualify for the discount, generating a potential annual loss of revenue of $203 million. - The types of immigration benefits subject to a fee waiver are significantly expanded. The rule significantly expanded the benefits that may be exempt from fees altogether – leaving fee-paying applicants and petitioners to cover the costs. USCIS reported forgoing $613 million in revenue in its FY 2016/17 fee review, and an astounding $1.494 billion in its FY 2019/2020 fee review. How much revenue will USCIS forgo as a result of fee waivers? The bottom line? This new fee structure passes significant costs – including the growing costs of the border crisis – to U.S. employers hiring legal foreign workers. In his closing commentary, Mark Krikorian, the Center’s Executive Director and host of the podcast, criticizes those on both sides of the immigration debate who have used the recent Baltimore bridge tragedy as an excuse to push their policy agendas.

  • Kaus on Immigration Politics

    21 MAR 2024 · Campaign season is in full swing as the 2024 presidential election looms less than eight months away. According to a recent Gallup poll, immigration is considered the biggest issue facing the country, with a majority of Americans expressing disapproval of the president’s handling of the issue.  In today’s episode of Parsing Immigration Policy, host Mark Krikorian, the Center’s executive director, dives into the politics of the immigration issue alongside journalist and author Mickey Kaus. As one of the earliest political bloggers and a democrat, Kaus brings a unique perspective to the conversation. The two men, each representing differing political viewpoints, engage in a thoughtful discussion on President Biden’s immigration policy choices. Will public opinion force Biden to adjust his stance on immigration and shift to the middle as the election approaches? Krikorian and Kaus explore the immigration goals of those on the left and examine potential strategies for achieving them. Host Mark Krikorian is the Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies. Guest Mickey Kaus is a political journalist.
