For the second time in a very short span, I am writing about an immigration-related item to be found in the New York Times. Earlier this week, I commented on an article entitled "Hoping for Asylum, Migrants Strain U.S. Border".

Now I find myself looking retrospectively to an article which preceded that one by a matter of days, and feeling obliged to respond to some of the assertions that can be found within it. This article was published by the Times on April 6, with the heading "More Deportations Follow Minor Crimes, Records Show".

This Backgrounder examines the partisan political implications of large-scale #immigration. A comparison of #voting patterns in presidential elections across counties over the last three decades shows that mass immigration has caused a steady drop in presidential #Republican vote shares, particularly in the nation's largest counties. Each one percentage-point increase in the immigrant share of a large county's population reduces the Republican share of the two-party vote by nearly 0.6 percentage points on average.

Like Senator Marco Rubio, Governor Chris Christie, Senator Chuck Schumer, and other amnesty advocates, Jeb Bush seems to believe that if you don't acknowledge that the vast majority of illegal aliens commit multiple, job-related felonies then the felonies don't exist.

As a Catholic, I am saddened and alarmed by the bishop's use of the Holy Eucharist as a photo opportunity to push for amnesty. As a person informed on immigration issues, I am appalled by the bishops' lack of understanding of how their actions encourage foreigners to illegally cross our border, leaving their family members behind, to come wait out an amnesty which may never happen. #catholicism #immigration

My piece today at National Review Online calls for every March 31 to be observed as National Border Control Day, in honor of Cesar Chavez's commitment to tight borders (it's his birthday). In it I mentioned the new biopic about him. The movie itself wasn't bad, in a basketball-team-from-the-wrong-side-of-the-tracks-wins-the-big-game kind of way. (Many of the reviews were less generous.) #cesarchavez   #cesarchavezmovie #cesarchavezday

The New York Times finally catches up with the Center for Immigration Studies...
The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s policies from the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have called him the “deporter in chief.”

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson has floated the trial balloon, in recent congressional testimony, that the mandate is more like a suggestion – DHS is required by law to keep paying the bills for the beds, at taxpayer expense, but not necessarily to fill them. #immigration #detention

A case now working its way to the U.S. Supreme Court, Lopez-Valenzuela vs. Maricopa County, pits the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) against Arizona and its mandatory detention of accused felons who are also illegally present in the United States. This practice, claims the ACLU, is unconstitutional.

So why is there a blog post about the [Flash Boys] book on the website of the Center for Immigration Studies? Well, take a look about Lewis's description of his entrepreneurial good guys to Terry Gross of the "Fresh Air" radio show.

A review of internal ICE metrics for 2013 reveals that hundreds of thousands of deportable aliens who were identified in the interior of the country were released instead of removed under the administration's sweeping "prosecutorial discretion" guidelines.

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.
