Center For Immigration Studies Puts Out Compelling Tweets About The Border

The Center for Immigration (CIS) put out a series of tweets about the border. They revealed that the media and Congress are really hurting us when it comes to border security. The recent twitter panel included Former Acting ICE Director Tom Homan, Texas sheriff Andy Louderback, and the Center’s Andrew Arthur.

The Center for Immigration Studies is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit, research organization. Since our founding in 1985 by Otis Graham Jr., we have pursued a single mission – providing immigration policymakers, the academic community, news media, and concerned citizens with reliable information about the social, economic, environmental, security, and fiscal consequences of legal and illegal immigration into the United States.”

CIS covered one of the main loopholes that migrants are exploiting.

“”The primary loophole migrants are exploiting is Flores…Under a July 2016 decision interpreting Flores, it said DHS can only detain alien minors for 20 days regardless of whether they’re accompanied. Flores encourages parents to hire smugglers to bring their children here.”

Parents bring their children on this perilous journey because they know, due to Flores, that their kids will be released within 20 days. So every time you hear about a child dying on the border, know where responsibility lies. This is drawing children to the U.S.” -Art Arthur

CIS also covered the state of the Detention Centers
