The Center for Immigration Studies depends on generous supporters large and small to sustain its ambitious research and publication output, as well as its significant online presence and public outreach. We have testified before Congress more than 130 times. We have also testified before dozens of state legislatures, as well as the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, and our work has been cited as an authority by the Supreme Court and the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General. With a relatively tiny budget, we are one of the most cited immigration groups in the media and are ranked as one of the most influential think tanks in the United States, out of nearly 2,000 such organizations.
