New Study Examines Immigration Trends

The Pew Research Center on Wednesday released a study surveying illegal immigration up through 2017, before the advent of massive caravans and the migrant surge that began in 2018.

Mexico Steps Up Immigration Enforcement

In response to the deal just negotiated between Mexico and the U.S., the Mexican government, thrilled at having evaded President Trump’s threatened tariff, does seem to have stepped up enforcement of its own laws. For example, on Sunday Mexican National Guardsmen stopped the freight train known as La Bestia near Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas, a city north …

Does New Agreement End Catch-and-Release?

There is hope this morning that a new agreement, announced yesterday, between the United States and Mexico may have effectively ended the disastrous policy of “catch-and-release,” whereby asylum-seeing family units must be released into the U.S. after a short period of processing.

Mexico Finds an Ally in the Tariff Wars: Republicans

President Trump’s threats to saddle Mexican imports with tariffs come June 10  is having a predictable effect, as officials howl and respond with their own threats of retaliation. It’s not being greeted too warmly down in Mexico either. “Senate Republicans are tariff weary,” said Senator Kevin Cramer, a North Dakota Republican who predicted that the Senate …
