    Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko has signed a decree to withdraw all Ukrainian envoys from the statutory bodies of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), a loose political and economic confederation of nine post-Soviet nations heavily dominated by Russia. The decision was announced on Poroshenko’s Twitter page in tribute to Europe Day, celebrated in Ukraine on May 19. “For us, the CIS is completely and entirely gone to the past,” the message on the presidential page also reads. “Our future is in Europe only!” The CIS was formed by a group of former Soviet republics in the agonizing final days of...
  • Federal Government Gives $2 Billion If Businesses Hire Aliens Over Americans

    National Economics Editorial ^ | March 6, 2018 | Dylan Scott
    Small Businesses Get $2 Billion If They Hire Alien Grads Instead Of American Grads The Federal government is still incentivizing businesses to favor immigrants over Americans, to the tune of $2 billion in subsidies across the country, according to the Center for Immigration Studies. They do this via the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program. This program by the Federal government provides money to businesses that discriminate against American citizens in favor of immigrant ones. At this point, this is just par for the course. According to the CIS, this program was used to scrape $2 billion from the Federal tax...

    Center for Immigration Studies ^ | November 1, 2017 | By Dan Cadman
    As I write this, a few facts are starting to trickle out about Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, the man who committed the terrorist attack in Manhattan using a rented Home Depot truck on October 31, killing eight and injuring nearly a dozen more innocent people. (See, for instance, here and here.) First, we are told that he is Uzbek, having arrived in the United States from Uzbekistan "legally" in 2010. Second, some outlets have suggested that he may be married with two children, but I haven't seen any multiple verifications of that. Third, he appears to have been a Uber driver...
  • Trump’s crackdown on immigration focuses new attention on Clayton {Clayton County,Georgia}

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ^ | February 02, 2017 | By Tammy Joyner
    In November 2014, the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office announced it would no longer honor the federal government’s request to hold detainees facing possible deportation beyond their scheduled release date on local charges. The decision, in effect, made Clayton Georgia’s sole sanctuary community. Clayton’s policy largely went unnoticed and unchallenged during the past couple of years. But this week, the Trump administration’s crackdown on undocumented immigrants has focused new atttention on Clayton’s claim, which is also at odds with state law. News that Clayton may be a safe harbor for undocumented workers broadsided local leaders who now are scrambling to determine...

    The Department of Health and Human Services is raiding several of its accounts, including money for Medicare, the Ryan White AIDS/HIV program and those for cancer and flu research to cover a shortfall in housing illegal youths pouring over the border at a rate of 255 a day. HHS is trying to come up with $167 million to fund the Office of Refugee Resettlement that is accepting the youths, according to the Center for Immigration Studies. Policy Director Jessica Vaughan said that insiders have told her that the funding crisis has forced the department to squeeze programs for money. She...

    Washingston Post ^ | February 4 | Paul Kane and Kelsey Snell
    Sen. Rob Portman, a former U.S trade ambassador, announced Thursday that he opposes a sweeping 12-nation Pacific Rim trade agreement, dealing a setback to a deal that is seen as a key part of President Obama’s economic legacy. The Ohio Republican is facing a difficult re-election campaign against Ted Strickland, an anti-trade former Democratic governor, in a state that has seen a steep decline in manufacturing as a result of companies moving operations overseas. The announcement is a significant but not fatal blow to the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement, which is protected by fast-track rules that ensure it cannot...
  • Report: $64,370 Cost to Resettle One Middle Eastern Refugee In U.S.

    The estimated cost to resettle an average, single Middle Eastern refugee in the U.S. over the first five years is $64,370, or 12 times the United Nations estimates it costs to support a refugee staying in a neighboring Middle Eastern country, according to an analysis from the Center for Immigration Studies. ........ According to CIS, while the UN has sought $1,057 annually to support each Syrian refugee living in neighboring Middle Eastern countries it would cost the U.S. $64,370 per refugee in the first five years, or $257,481 per refugee household, to resettle them in the U.S. 'The five-year costs...

    (CNSNews.com) – On Nov. 20, the same day President Barack Obama announced executive action to shield millions of illegal aliens from deportation, Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson issued an agency-wide memorandum explaining new guidelines for enforcing the nation’s immigration laws -- or not enforcing them based on a wide range of “circumstances.” Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson spoke about the U.S. government response to the growing number of youth crossing the border illegally on June 12, 2014 in Washington, D.C. (CNSNews.com/Penny Starr) Those guidelines are receiving minimal media attention but, coupled with the president's executive action mean...

    ... Shaheen, when asked by Breitbart News about a recent study from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) that found 71 percent of all New Hampshire jobs since 2000 have gone to both legal and illegal aliens rather than New Hampshire citizens, ducked for cover. “My understanding is that’s a study sponsored by a right-wing organization,” she replied. When Breitbart News noted that the study is based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau and other government sources—and includes no data from non-governmental sources—her communications director Harrell Kirsten abruptly called an end to the press conference inside the local Democratic...

    The interim government in Kiev says Ukraine will leave the commonwealth of post-Soviet states and force Russians to apply for entry visas, and plans to ask the United Nations to make Crimea a demilitarized zone. The raft of measures – a response to Russia’s incorporation of Crimea into its territory following Sunday’s referendum – was announced by National Security and Defense Council chief Andrey Parubiy during a press briefing in Kiev. The Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) was founded to maintain economic and security links between former Soviet republics when they became independent states in 1991. It initially included the...

    The Daily Beast ^ | March 22, 2013 | David Frum
    In 2008, Mark Krikorian published an important new book arguing against permissive immigration. The book's central idea: what has changed since Ellis Island days is not the immigrants; it's the society they are immigrating to. In 1913, a Sicilian who migrated to New York City to do manual labor would discover a society willing to pay a high wage for his effort. In 2013 … not so. Yesterday's New York Times reports on a new study confirming Krikorian's insight. People of Mexican descent in New York City are far more likely to be living in poor or near-poor households than...

    Brookings has put out the latest example of bogus immigration polling. Here’s the New York Times lede: [New York Times] Nearly two-thirds of Americans favor giving illegal immigrants in the country an opportunity for legal status with a path to citizenship, according to a poll published Thursday by the Public Religion Research Institute and the Brookings Institution. Support for an earned path to citizenship for those immigrants came from 71 percent of Democrats and also a majority, 53 percent, of Republicans, the poll found. Oh, my. I guess our goose is cooked, the end is near, we’ve reached the tipping...

    There is no reason to believe that 81 percent of new jobs were filled by immigrants in Texas.The Texas Public Policy Foundation (TPPF) has released a detailed rejoinder to a well-publicized study by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) that made a remarkable claim: “Of jobs created in Texas since 2007, 81 percent were taken by newly arrived immigrant workers (legal and illegal).” Put simply, CIS used faulty methodology to make its main point. It compared a net increase in jobs in Texas over a four-year period with a gross increase in employed newly arrived immigrants in Texas. This is...

    This Memorandum examines the costs and likely impact of the DREAM Act currently being considered by Congress. The act offers permanent legal status to illegal immigrants up to age 35 who arrived in the United States before age 16 provided they complete two years of college. Under the act, beneficiaries would receive in-state tuition. Given the low income of illegal immigrants, most can be expected to attend state schools, with a cost to taxpayers in the billions of dollars. As both funds and slots are limited at state universities and community colleges, the act may reduce the educational opportunities available...
