Panel: Trump vs. Biden on Immigration

The Center for Immigration Studies hosted a panel analyzing the presidential candidates' positions on immigration and how immigration policy may be impacted by the November 3 election. Immigration has not been widely discussed by either presidential campaign, but the issue has a major impact on many issues Americans care strongly about, including jobs, wages, healthcare, the economy, law enforcement, and education.

New H-1B Rules to Protect American Workers

The new H-1B rules being announced today are long-overdue moves to protect American workers. These reforms strike directly at the harmful staffing-company model of employment that has commodified these visa workers, displaced qualified Americans, and undermined the integrity of employment visa programs.

DHS Announces OPT Enforcement Moves, Opening 1,100 jobs for Citizens

It is useful that DHS has taken these steps against a small percentage of the OPT workers who apparently are not in status, but it would make even more sense to eliminate the program completely, as it has no legislative basis and takes something like $2 billion a year out of the Social Security and Medicare trust funds, while denying 200,000 or so American college grads jobs.

U.S.-Bound Yemeni Migrants and Their Smuggler Busted in Brazil

Happening as they are in a major hemispheric transit country like Brazil, the human smuggling busts warrant wider public notice as a boon to U.S. national security. The joint U.S.-Brazil operations are akin to blowing immigrant-smuggling bridges that connect countries of terrorism concern, like Yemen, to the southern border and make it possible for terrorists to cross.

State Department (a Bit Late) Makes the Right Move on 'B-1 in Lieu of H-1B'

The State Department has taken exactly the right steps in connection with an obscure misuse of a foreign worker program termed, obliquely, "the use of B-1 in lieu of H-1B". It has proposed regulations that will simply drop two sentences in existing rules, which, in turn, wipes out the program completely; and, of course, it takes 40 pages of small type to explain what it will do.

Biden vs. Trump on Asylum

One campaign wants to expand eligibility, the other has instituted actions to plug what it deems a 'loophole'

The Trump administration has implemented a number of administrative actions to plug what it deems the asylum "loophole" — which, it contends, has encouraged migrants to enter the United States illegally and make fraudulent or meritless asylum claims. In his campaign documents, Biden has openly opposed these Trump administrative actions, and vowed to end them.
