Immigration: The 2020 Election and Future Elections

Mark Krikorian,
Executive Director, Center for Immigration Studies

Tuesday, February 11, 2020

11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

The White House website posts the following statement regarding immigration:

"The United States must adopt an immigration system that serves the national interest. To restore the rule of law and secure our border, President Trump is committed to constructing a border wall and ensuring the swift removal of unlawful entrants. To protect American workers, the President supports ending chain migration, eliminating the Visa Lottery, and moving the country to a merit-based entry system. These reforms will advance the safety and prosperity of all Americans while helping new citizens assimilate and flourish."

How important will the Immigration issue be in our 2020 election? What changes have been realized since the Trump Administration boldly began, back when you couldn’t even talk about the issue? One impact of immigration will be evident when the census numbers spur redistricting of U.S. House seats. This in turn will impact the Electoral College.

To bring us up-to-date on trends, policy changes and proposals, Mark Krikorian, Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies in Washington, D.C. will share his unique insight and knowledge.
