Immigration

Virtually everyone agrees that America’s immigration system is deeply flawed, with millions of foreign-born individuals residing in the United States without documentation. Century’s work on immigration explores ideas for reform while synthesizing research about this complex and highly controversial subject in ways that non-experts can understand.

  • Although the contentious last steps toward passage of President Obama’s health care reform package dominated last week’s headlines, it was not the only important debate taking place. On Sunday, March 21st, thousands of protesters attended an immigration reform rally in Washington, D.C., calling on legislators to overhaul the nation’s immigration system. The rally came days after President Obama publicly pledged to support the Bipartisan Immigration Reform Framework, advanced by Senators Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC).

  • There’s no doubt the politics of immigration reform are very complicated and that getting a bill through Congress will not be easy. But it’s important to be clear that the public is quite supportive of immigration reform, especially reform that is comprehensive and does not simply focus on punitive measures. This has been true of the public for some time and a new Benenson Strategy Group poll for America’s Voice demonstrates that it is still true today.

  • As Census workers begin their outreach, efforts to reach the nation's nearly 12 million undocumented immigrants have already raised concerns over whether there will be an accurate tally of immigrant residents, both documented and undocumented. Immigrant communities clearly have much at stake in ensuring that their members are fully counted. Why should citizens care about whether non-citizens are counted?

  • Commentary: The Undeserving
    It is no accident that civility broke down in Congress when President Obama was discussing the access of immigrants to subsidized health care.  The most persistent and entrenched reason for opposing progressive change in America has been that “the undeserving” might benefit.  With health care reform, too, much of the opposition, at its core, comes from those who would rather have nobody benefit than to see benefits extended to groups they despise.
