The American Immigration Council (AIC) has released all fifty states and the District of Columbia, for a total of fifty-one updated state-by-state fact sheets highlighting immigration data and facts. These fact sheets highlight the demographic and economic impact of Immigrants in each state.

With national immigration policy being discussed, we thought that it would be a good time to provide some statistics on the Immigrant population in the United States as provided by this AIC research. Once a week we will be posting a blog with information on three states at a time. This week we will highlight; New Jersey, New Mexico and New York!

The AIC has compiled research which shows that Immigrants are an essential part of each of these states’ economy, labor force and tax base. As our economy continues to grow, Immigrants and their children are a growing economic and political force as consumers, taxpayers and entrepreneurs. As United States economic continues to grow, immigrants and their children will continue to play a key role in shaping the economic and political future of each of these states.

USCIS has released a new YouTube video documentary entitled, “USCIS and the Legacy of Ellis Island”. This documentary describes the operational history of USCIS at Ellis Island and is told from their employees’ point of view!

USCIS posted on Wednesday, July 25, 2018 that it is now accepting applications for two funding opportunities under the Citizenship and Assimilation Grant Program! This Grant Program provides up to $10 million in grants each year for citizenship preparation programs across the United States.

USCIS has an online Electronic Reading Room with access to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requested documents. The Reading Room is really a Web-based searchable database of public requested FOIA documents; mixed with USCIS documents that the government decided may have a larger public demand. You can use pull-downs to choose different listed subjects and include any month/year date from January 2011 to the present. You can also type in your own keywords to search.

On Tuesday, June 26, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court announced it had upheld President Trump’s Travel Ban of mostly Muslim countries. The Supreme Court voted 5-4, with all five conservative Justices voting in the majority! The seven countries affected are: Venezuela, North Korea, Syria, Libya, Iran, Yemen and Somalia; the last five were on the original Travel Ban and are Muslim-Majority countries. The Travel Ban treats countries differently; Venezuela’s Travel Ban is mostly against Venezuelan Government Officials traveling to the U.S. and the Travel Ban against Syria, travel is completely suspended. The Travel Ban was one of President Trump’s major campaign promises!

Reactions:

  • New York Governor Andrew Cuomo called Trump’s Travel Ban “a stain on this country’s history.”
