Immigration Policy Center Releases DHS Progress Report

1DHS Progress Report: The Challenge of Reform In an analysis of the immigration policy of President Barack Obama’s first year, the Immigration Policy Center’s new report “reveals that DHS [Department of Homeland Security] is a department caught between entrenchment on enforcement and the competing priorities of new reforms. “ The report finds that while DHS has failed to meet some key expectations in the areas of due process, enforcement, detention, family immigration, naturalization, immigrant integration, and asylum, “it has also engaged thoughtfully and strategically on others, and has made some fundamental changes in how it conducts its immigration business.” “The Immigration Policy Center is the research and policy arm of the American Immigration Council. Its mission is to shape a rational conversation on immigration and immigrant integration.”
