New Government Report: Internal Migration in the United States

Internal Migration in the United States

by James H. Miller
Paperback, 126 pages, 2011, $25.00
ISBN: 1437987419

This report reviews patterns in migration within the U.S. over the past thirty years. Internal migration has fallen noticeably since the 1980s, reversing increases from earlier in the century. The decline in migration has been widespread across demographic and socioeconomic groups, as well as for moves of all distances. Although a convincing explanation for the secular decline in migration remains elusive and requires further research, the authors find only limited roles for the housing market contraction and the economic recession in reducing migration recently. Despite its downward trend, migration within the U.S. remains higher than that within most other developed countries. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.

New Government Report: U.S. Immigration Policy on Haitian Migrants

U.S. Immigration Policy on Haitian Migrants
By Ruth Ellen Wasem (Paperback, 16 pages, 2010, $15)

Migrant interdiction and mandatory detention are key components of U.S. policy toward Haitian migrants, but human rights advocates express concern that Haitians are not afforded the same treatment as other asylum seekers.

The devastation caused by the Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake in Haiti has led Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano to grant Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to Haitians in the U.S. at the time of the earthquake.

There are concerns that the crisis conditions in Haiti may result in mass migration from the island. The balancing of DHS’s border security and immigration control responsibilities in the midst of a humanitarian disaster poses a challenge.

Contents of this report: (I) Current Context; (II) Immigration Trends: Migration by Sea; Haitians Currently Residing in the U.S.

(III) Policy Evolution; Post-Mariel Policy; Interdiction Agreement; Crisis After the Coup; Pre-Screening and Repatriation; Safe Haven and Refugee Processing; Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act (HRIFA); Mandatory Detention of Aliens in Expedited; Removal; Procedural Practices and Controversies;

(IV) Temporary Protected Status; (V) Federal Assistance to Haitian Migrants; Cuban-Haitian Entrants; Major Federal Benefit Programs; Refugee Resettlement Assistance; (VI) Issues in 111th Congress: Haitian Families with Approved Petitions; Adoption of Haitian Orphans; Supplemental FY2010 Funding; Possible Mass Migration; Status Adjustment.
