Join us for our first meeting of the new year as we welcome Dr. Stephen Steinlight. One of the nation’s leading authorities on immigration, Dr. Steinlight's timely subject is, "Dispatches from the Front in the Immigration War." His talk offers a current overview of where this issue stands at a critical moment: during the nominating process in which immigration is a central issue for the GOP and will be for the nation in the presidential election; while Obama's post-American scheme to eviscerate the Constitutional separation of powers and nullify immigration law to unmake one America and replace it with another proceeds apace; while bi-partisan collusion in maintaining our ruinous immigration policy continues; when the threat to national security as a consequence of open-borders immigration and an irrational "refugee policy" has gravely worsened; and at a time when two law suits are wending their way through the legal system towards the Supreme Court which will have profound implications for the politics of immigration and, beyond that, for American democracy.
Dr. Steinlight is Senior Policy Analyst at the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) in Washington, DC. He focuses on ascending trends in immigration and immigration policy, America’s changing demography and culture, the politics of immigration, the impact of immigration on the nation’s social cohesion, the consequences of massive low-skill immigration on America’s most vulnerable groups, and reviews immigration legislation. Dr. Steinlight is also concerned with the nexus between immigration and national security.
Dr. Steinlight has testified before the Judiciary Committee of the United States House of Representatives and the Judiciary Committee of the United States Senate. He has also provided expert testimony before state legislatures and State Freedom of Information Commissions. He has shared podiums with Senators, members of the House and presidential candidates. He has also addressed hundreds of state legislator and civic and religious groups across the country, been a panelist at academic conferences and public forums, and is frequently interviewed on radio and TV. He has written extensively on many of the central issues in the immigration debate.
This will be a great meeting to invite elected officials to attend, because Dr. Steinlight has the facts and figures to show the detrimental effects that unrestricted immigration can have on communities.
