Statement for the House Judiciary Committee, Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security on "The Real Victims of a Reckless and Lawless Immigration Policy: Families and Survivors speak out on the Real Cost of this Administration's Policies"

April 19, 2016

The American Immigration Council submitted a written statement to the House Committee, Subcommitte on Immigration and Border Security for an April 19, 2016 hearing on "The Real Victims of a Reckless and Lawless Immigration Policy: Families and Survivors Speak Out on the Real Cost of this Administration's Policies." The statement shares our research and analysis regarding the Obama administration's removal and enforcement policies and the effect they have on communities. The statement also shares empirical data which shows that immigration is associated with lower crime rates and immigrants are less likely than the native-born to be serious criminals. Ultimately, we continue to urge Congress for comprehensive immigration reform.
