United States Military Academy Professor Coauthors Study on the Relationship Between National Security & Immigration Policy

A study released last week attempts to bridge the divide between national security and immigration policy. The study, co-authored by Donald Kerwin, Executive Director of the Catholic Legal Immigration Network, and Margaret Stock, AILA Member and Associate Professor at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, examines U.S. national security responses in the wake of 9/11, evaluates the efficacy of these responses, and identifies the impact these responses have had on human rights and immigration. Concluding that many national security measures taken since 9/11 not only impose unnecessary restraints on human rights and immigration, but also are counterproductive in the battle against terrorism, the authors offer five recommendations for effectively integrating national security measures and immigration policy. Among these recommendations are appeals for passage in Congress of truly comprehensive immigration reform like that proposed in the current Senate bill (S.2611), and for defeat of enforcement-only measures like those proposed in the current House bill (H.R. 4437).
