As of the end of March, ICE had released another 10,246 criminal aliens. This pace of criminal releases is down from 2013 and 2014 — but only because ICE is arresting far fewer people to start with, not because there are fewer to arrest.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has published an investigative report on violent criminals released by ICE. Aptly titled "Convicted, but free to roam: Giving little notice, federal authorities have r

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services still promoting Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for aliens — legal or illegal — despite the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring epidemic over in Liberia.
One would never know that the Ebola crisis is over in Liberia, and fast shrinking in neighboring Sierra Leone and Guinea, if one paid attention only to USCIS. Several days ago the World Health Organi

But today the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals denied the Obama administration’s appeal of the injunction as well as its request to narrow the scope of the injunction to just Texas (in order to let DAPA move forward in other states). The court explained that the government is unlikely to succeed on the merits of its appeal.
In February, federal judge Andrew Hanen, of the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of Texas, issued an injunction temporarily blocking President Obama’s expanded executive amnesty, known as

Recently discovered data reveal that in fiscal years 2010-2012, the grants of fee waivers doubled each year, reaching more than 370,000 in the last-noted year. 
USCIS, unlike most government entities, is largely funded by fees collected from those seeking benefits from that agency. Recently discovered data reveal that in fiscal years 2010-2012, the grants of

Silicon Valley oligarchs come to the immigration debate with considerable advantages. Aside from the obvious giant bags of money, there’s the perception (often correct) that they're wizards responsible for breathtaking innovation and economic growth. #FWDUS #Immigration

The Center for Immigration Studies is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit, research organization.
Introduction

The Center for Immigration Studies is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit, research organization. Since our founding in 1985, we have pursued a single mission – providing immigration policymakers, the academic community, news media, and concerned citizens with reliable information about the social, economic, environmental, security, and fiscal consequences of legal and illegal immigration into the United States.

The Center is governed by a diverse board of directors that has included active and retired university professors, civil rights leaders, and former government officials. Our research and analysis has been funded by contributions and grants from dozens of private foundations, from the U.S. Census Bureau and Justice Department, and from hundreds of generous individual donors.

Our board, our staff, our researchers, and our contributor base are not predominantly "liberal" or predominantly "conservative." Instead, we believe in common that debates about immigration policy that are well-informed and grounded in objective data will lead to better immigration policies.

The data collected by the Center during the past quarter-century has led many of our researchers to conclude that current, high levels of immigration are making it harder to achieve such important national objectives as better public schools, a cleaner environment, homeland security, and a living wage for every native-born and immigrant worker. These data may support criticism of US immigration policies, but they do not justify ill feelings toward our immigrant community. In fact, many of us at the Center are animated by a "low-immigration, pro-immigrant" vision of an America that admits fewer immigrants but affords a warmer welcome for those who are admitted.
