Stephen Yale-Loehr was interviewed by Raw Story in “Immigration Expert Explains Why Trump’s Migrant Policy Won’t Work.” Among other things, in response to a question asking for his thoughts on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, he said,
“All countries need some kind of immigration enforcement agency. The question is how to manage immigration enforcement humanely and effectively. Moreover, Congress will never appropriate enough money to round up and deport all 11 million undocumented immigrants estimated to be in the United States. We should focus our limited priorities on removing terrorists, not people who simply overstayed their visas.”
Mr. Yale-Loehr discussed “Immigration Meritocracy,” regarding his new research project studying merit-based immigration, what a “merit-based” immigration system means, and how it would work in the United States, in a podcast presented by the Everyday Immigration Podcast, produced by LionCeau Productions LLC.
