New York Green-Light Law Creates Serious and Unprecedented Hurdles for Immigration Enforcement

New York State has followed the lead of several other states to diminish the amount of documentary evidence needed to secure a driver's license in that state. On June 17, 2019, Governor Cuomo signed the Driver's License Access and Privacy Act, commonly known as the "Green-Light law".

New Data Shows Falloff in Immigration in 2017

Decline does not reflect recent surge at southwest border

A new analysis shows 1.45 million new legal and illegal immigrants settled in the United States in 2017, less than the 1.75 million in 2016 or the 1.62 million in 2015

The decline in arrivals in 2017 may be due to the increased enforcement efforts, lower refugee admissions, and more robust vetting of applicants undertaken by the Trump administration.

ICE Report Supports My Analysis

Sometimes, it's not good to be correct

Last week I suggested that the large number of "non-criminal" detainees identified in a recent report reflected the massive influx of aliens who had been apprehended after entering illegally in FY 2019.
