Refugee Placement and Medical Concerns Amid a Covid-19 Pandemic and an Economic Crisis

During the "suspension" period, from March 19 through June 17, 285 refugees were placed in American communities. There is no indication that refugees are being tested for the Covid-19 virus overseas or placed under quarantine upon arrival. 

Stopping Chinese Infiltration of U.S. Educational and Research Institutions

Foreign students and exchange scholars from certain countries — predominantly, but not exclusively, the People's Republic of China — represent an extraordinary risk to the United States through their extracurricular espionage activities.

But Quinn's proposal is a terrible idea and should be given no countenance for several reasons.

A Good Idea That Didn't Work: More Central Americans in H-2B program

It was a good idea when DHS sought to broaden participation of people from the Northern Triangle nations of Central America in the H-2B foreign worker program in March 2020; the notion was that it might divert some of the pressure on our southern border into legal channels. (It was also a good idea when I floated it in June 2019.) Then the virus crisis hit us. The number of H-2B visas for workers from the three nations actually dropped.

DHS/DOJ Propose Redefining What Constitutes a 'Frivolous' Asylum Application

Revising the pinched Clinton-era definition would expedite valid protection claims and deter abuse
