Houston Immigration Research Data and Reports from HILSC Partners

The Collaborative strives to be a source of timely and accurate data and information about immigration in the greater Houston region. In general, we recommend seeking information from un-biased, reputable sources. The Migration Policy Institute and the Center for Migration Studies are excellent sources of high-quality data about immigrant demographics and trends as well as research about changing immigration policy. The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at the University of Syracuse is the go-to source of current data about immigration enforcement, staffing, and spending. New American Economy provides accurate data about the economic impact of immigrants at the state, county, and congressional district level.

Today, the Biden admin increased access to asylum for people who have suffered persecution and fled to the US for safety. Vacating these two decisions (Matter of A-B and L-E-A), is a critical step - but far from the only step needed. http://www.npr.org/2021/06/16/1007277888/the-justice-department-overturns-rules-that-limited-asylum-for-survivors-of-viol

Importantly, A.G. Garland does not set any new asylum law through his decisions in A-B- and L-E-A-'s cases.

Instead, he just vacated the decisions in favor of future rulemaking that they've suggested will come in the fall, requiring judges to go back to the pre-Trump precedent.
