Mark Krikorian, a nationally recognized expert on immigration issues, has served as Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) since 1995. The Center is an independent, non-profit research organization in Washington DC which examines and critiques the impact of immigration on the United States. The Center is animated by a vision of a pro-immigrant, low-immigration national policy that seeks fewer immigrants who receive a warmer welcome. The Center was established in 1985 to respond to the need for reliable, fact-based research in the areas of immigration.
Mr Krikorian's name is likely to be familiar to many in any audience. His knowlege and expertise in the immigration field are sought by Congress as well as by the mainstream and new media. He has recently been interviewed in 60 Minutes, NPR, Nightline, CNN, Fox, as well as many newspapers. He contributes to National Review Online and the New York Times.
Mr Krikorian holds a Masters degree from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and his BA is from Georgetown University. He spent two years at Yerevan State University in then-Soviet Armenia.
With his research colleagues, some of the works recently published by CIS include:
The High Cost of Cheap Labor: An Examination of trends in Immigrant Welfare Use since Welfare reform; Who Benefited from Job Growth in Texas?; Declining Summer Employment among American Youths; Panel video : Welfare Use by legal and Illegal Immigrants; Panel Video: 1965 Immigration Act 50 Years Later; Panel transcript: Immigration Briefing for 114th Congress; An Aid Program that routinely Discriminates in favor of Ineligible Aliens; Declining Deportations and Increasing Criminal Alien Releases; The High Cost of Resettling Middle Eastern Refugees; Another Surge of Illegal Immigrants along the Southwest Border; Panel transcript: Local Impact of Illegal Border Surge (schools).
The audience may wish to note that CIS has formulated a listing of 79 measures which a new President may himself take to mitigate some of the more damaging aspects of mass migration into the US: See "A Pen and A Phone" (http://cis.org/A-Pen-and-a-Phone-79-immigration-actions-the-next-president-can-take).
