March 27 - Immigration: Fact vs Fiction

Join Tiger Bay Club of Southwest Florida on March 27 for an evening with Immigration expert Dr. Steven Camarota

Immigration is a hot topic across our nation … from the Dream Act to “building the wall” – there are many opinions on both sides of the aisle. What effect do these discussions, decisions and policies have on the state of economy.

Dr. Steven Camarota, Immigration Expert

Join us for an evening meeting with Dr. Steven Camarota,  Director of Research for the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), a Washington, DC-based research institute that examines the consequences of legal and illegal immigration on the United States.

In recent years Dr. Camarota has testified before Congress more than any other non-government expert on the economic and fiscal impact of immigration.  In addition, he was the lead research on a contract with the Census Bureau examining the quality of immigrant data in the American Community Survey.

Dr. Camarota’s research has been featured on the front pages of The New York Times, The Washington Post, and USA Today as well as numerous other media outlets. His academic articles have been published for journals, including the Public Interest and Social Science Quarterly. He has also written general interest pieces for such publications as the Chicago Tribune and National Review.  His analysis and commentary are frequently heard on radio and television news programs including CNN, MSNBC, Fox News Channel, NBC Nightly News, and ABC World News Tonight, CBS Evening News, National Public Radio, and NewsHour on PBS.

Dr. Camarota received a master’s degree in political science from the University of Pennsylvania and later earned a doctorate degree from the University of Virginia in public policy analysis.
