Immigration Right in DC Podcasts

The Schumer-Pelosi Border Disaster

On RIGHT IN DC, my guest is Mark Krikorian, a nationally recognized expert on immigration issues who has served as Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) since 1995. He is the author of the books, “Open Immigration: Yea & Nay,” “The New Case Against Immigration, Both Legal and Illegal” and “How Obama is Transforming America Through Immigration.”

Mark’s knowledge and expertise in the immigration field are sought by Congress, where he frequently testifies. He has published articles in numerous outlets including The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The New York Times, and elsewhere. He is a contributor at National Review Online, and has appeared on all major cable and broadcast news networks. Mark holds a master’s degree from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University.

On today’s show, we discuss the border disaster, which is spinning completely out of control because of Congressional inaction by Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to fix major legal loopholes that illegal immigrants exploit. Mark explains:

  • How these loopholes in the law (like allowing any illegal to be released if they bring a child) got started
  • Why the immigration issue got Donald Trump elected President
  • Why the main issue in the 2020 elections will be immigration and the border crisis
  • How Democrats, the Left and mainstream media who have Trump Derangement Syndrome have made themselves paralyzed to address and fix the crisis and how this will hurt them in the elections
  • The growing shift in tone by the New York Times and political figures who aren’t up for election who are acknowledging the real crisis at the border
  • The surprising reason for what is really driving illegal immigration to the US from all over the world
  • Data that shows how the cost of helping a Middle East refugee in the US is 12 times greater than helping more refugees in the place they first took refuge in the Middle East
  • Comparing the refugee policy after WW2 to the change in policy today which has corrupted the system and how these resettlement charities have benefited from government money
  • Why refugee settlement is actually an immoral and selfish act that doesn’t help the most amount of people
  • The solutions to fixing the illegal immigration crisis
