A Compendium of Recent Academic Work Showing Negative Impacts of Immigration

The costs and benefits of immigration are routinely measured, weighed, and debated in academic journals. No fair reading of the literature could conclude that immigration has only benefits — or only costs, for that matter.

Biden Has Released Nearly 1.05 million SW Border Migrants into the U.S.

The latest Biden administration disclosures in Biden v. Texas reveal that in May, DHS released 95,318 migrants CBP had encountered at the Southwest border into the United States, bringing the total of illegal migrant releases there under the Biden administration to 1,049,532 — a population larger than the number of residents in the president’s home state of Delaware, at a rate of 2,115 per day.

Latest DHS Report on Overstays in 2020 Brings Mixed News

The number of overstays in 2020 went up very slightly from 2019, as did the rate of overstays. This is bad news, considering that for half of the fiscal year international travel was drastically curtailed due to the pandemic and fewer visas were issued in the second half of the year. 

ICE Deportations Drop: Administration Hiding Data

The Biden administration’s lack of transparency on the impact of its controversial immigration policies suggests it knows the policies are disastrous for public safety. Congress must immediately demand that all data contained in the hidden report be made public.

SCOTUS’s Narrow Ruling on Remain in Mexico Punts on the Real Question

The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the Biden administration may end the Remain in Mexico program (formally known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, or MPP) started by the Trump administration. In fact, since the lower court’s injunction against the termination of MPP is invalidated, it seems like MPP turns into a pumpkin immediately.

Biden Has No Policy to Deter Illegal Immigration, but the Fight Isn’t Over Yet

In a blow to states that sued the Biden administration to bring the border under control, the Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the Department of Homeland Security isn’t required to continue the Trump-era Migrant Protection Protocols — better known as “Remain in Mexico” — and that lower courts can’t force the government to send illegal migrants back across the border to await their immigration hearings.

SCOTUS: Courts Cannot Enjoin Termination of ‘Remain in Mexico’

But the Court left most major questions about Biden’s border policy for the lower courts to decide

It will now be up to the lower courts to determine whether Mayorkas’ termination of Remain in Mexico was done properly, and whether the Biden administration’s release of illegal migrants at the Southwest border violates the law. This is likely not the last time the Court will be considering this case.

Decision in ‘Remain in Mexico’ Case Coming Thursday — Maybe

Opinion, postponement, or DIG; ‘the waiting is the hardest part’

The Supreme Court will be finishing out its term Thursday, and the “Remain in Mexico” case is one of two opinions yet to be issued. That means that a decision in the case will be coming tomorrow — maybe. Or perhaps the Court will postpone the decision until the fall or dismiss the government’s petition.
