Center For Immigration Studies Reveals New Video, Announces Upcoming Event


In its quest to document immigration violations — and the government’s apparent inability to control the incoming flow of people — along the United States-Mexican border, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) has released a new video reportedly showing gaps in border security.

The center says that Gaming the Border: a Report from Cochise County, Arizona reveals how illegal aliens find ways to cross the porous border by walking around checkpoints set up on highways.

It also features the story of John Ladd, a local rancher, who talks about frequent sightings of not only illegal immigrants, but drug smugglers running across his property.

The video shows Brandon Judd, president of the union that represents non-supervisory Border Patrol agents in the Tucson area, complaining about the agency’s insufficient manpower resources.

In view of the ongoing and often heated debate about the best immigration policy, the CIS will host a panel on the subject on Sept. 1 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

It will include experts James G. Gimpel, professor of government at the University of Maryland, College Park, and Ruy Teixeira, senior fellow at the Century Foundation and the Center for American Progress, who will discuss issues such as proposed amnesty, loose enforcement and the growth of legal immigration.ADNFCR-1961-ID-19931828-ADNFCR
