CIS Report Gets Diagnosis Right, Cure Wrong
Released on Sun, Mar 15, 2009
The Center for Immigration Studies' forthcoming report on the impact that immigration-enforcement raids at Swift & Co. meatpacking plants in 2006 had on wages and working conditions defines the problem but not the cure. In its attempt to advocate for the failed "enforcement-only" policies of the past, the report more effectively illustrates the need for comprehensive immigration reform, albeit unintentionally. The Immigration Policy Center's Director, Angela Kelley, issued a statement in response.
