Members of Congress and the media frequently cite the Center for Immigration Studies and its research about immigration. They quote its executive director, Mark Krikorian, as well as staffers Jason Richwine, Steven Camarota, and Jessica Vaughan whenever a conservative viewpoint is needed on immigration.
Here’s the problem: Congress and the media shouldn’t trust the research produced by CIS for a very simple reason: CIS produces flawed, disputed, and frequently false research. They are the intellectual frauds of the anti-immigrant movement. There are better options for Congress and the media to get a conservative viewpoint on immigration.
Center for Immigration Integrity is a nonprofit organization focused on setting the record straight on U.S. immigration reform. We lift up the factual information and voices of credible, respectable leaders in the immigration debate. We unmask the faces behind the hate groups fueling the wave of irresponsible voices advocating for a police-state-style of mass deportation. We support allies and the media with credible and factual information and resources.
