What’s Next for Arizona?
By Steven Camarota
NYTimes.com, August 22, 2010
http://www.cis.org/node/2192

Excerpt: Everyone agrees that Arizona has a huge illegal immigration problem. The government estimates nearly half a million illegal immigrants live in the state. My own research indicates that illegal immigrants account for one-third of state’s population lacking health insurance.

The state also spends roughly $2 billion a year on public education because of illegal immigration. Moreover, Americans who compete with illegal immigrants for jobs, those with no more than a high school education, have the highest rates of unemployment. In Arizona almost one in five of these less-educated Americans are out of work.

The G.O.P. and Birthright Citizenship
By Steven Camarota

Excerpt: Critics of automatic citizenship for the children of illegal immigrants are certainly correct that the stakes are high. The Center for Immigration Studies, based on an analysis of birth records, found that there are 380,000 births a year to illegal immigrant mothers – one out of 10 births. The Pew Hispanic Center analyzed a Census Bureau survey and estimated it was 340,000 a year, or one out of 12 births. Either way, the numbers are enormous.

Excerpt: We all know how nicely the Bush and Obama Administrations treated JPMorgan and the other big Wall Street banks.

But the fact that JPMorgan has a cushy relationship with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services may not be as well known.

ICE Chief Morton to Field: See No Illegal Aliens
By Jessica Vaughan
CIS Blog, August 19, 2010
http://www.cis.org/vaughan/see-no-illegal-aliens

Excerpt: ICE’s misleadingly-named Office of State and Local Cooperation (OSLC) has announced the next step in the Obama administration’s efforts to drastically diminish the scope of immigration law enforcement. According to a draft policy document now being circulated among a limited group of stakeholders, ICE chief John Morton intends to prohibit not only his officers, but also local officers with 287(g) immigration authority, from busting illegal aliens who are discovered as a result of traffic violations.

Book on Arizona Immigration Is a Missed Opportunity
By Jerry Kammer
CIS Blog, August 18, 2010
http://www.cis.org/kammer/missed-opportunity

Excerpt: Near the end of her beautifully written new book, Illegal: Life and Death in Arizona’s Immigration War Zone, Terry Greene Sterling makes a case for the Dream Act. That is the colloquial name of the legislative proposal that would provide legal status to many young people who were brought illegally to the U.S. by their parents and have shown a commitment to education.

A Tale of Two Governments: How They Report Illegal Haitian Migration
By David North
CIS Blog, August 17, 2010
http://www.cis.org/north/tale-of-two-governments

Excerpt: This is a tale of how two governments, the mighty United States, and the not-so-mighty Bahamas, handle the same story – the apparently increasing illegal migration from Haiti.

If you look at a map, you can see that the quickest way to get from Haiti to the U.S. is through hundreds of miles of Bahamian waters.

The Heavy Cost of Abandonment
By Jerry Kammer
CIS Blog, August 17, 2010

Excerpt: The call came from a college student. He wanted to know if we at CIS were aware of any studies about women who have been abandoned by husbands who have emigrated to the United States.

I encountered such women when I traveled in Mexico as a reporter. They were often struggling, not only to raise their children, but to come to grips with the crushing reality of abandonment.
