The Diversity Visa Lottery

An immigration program that is not in America's interest

 

The Center for Immigration Studies published several articles detailing the Diversity Visa Lottery program’s history and relevant statistics following the attack by the Uzbek terror suspect in New York City.

A new analysis of recently released U.S. Census data finds that the nation's immigrant population (legal and illegal) hit a record 43.7 million in 2016. The data also show more than 16.6 million U.S.-born minor children with an immigrant parent. Immigrants and their young children thus now account for nearly one in five U.S. residents.

Different Labor Market Impacts from Two Different Kinds of Visa Mills

Marginal foreign students, i.e., those who have secured an F-1 visa to work, not to study, impact the U.S. labor markets in different ways, depending on their course of study.

Last fall, I participated in a CIS panel entitled "Immigration and Less-Educated American Workers", alongside University of Pennsylvania law professor Amy Wax and political scientist Charles Murray. The panel was perhaps most notable for Murray's revelation that, despite his libertarian instincts, he had come around to the position that we should "shut down low-skill immigration for a while" to encourage more Americans to rejoin the labor force.
