10 Harmful Misconceptions About Immigration

The Equal Rights Center, a non-profit civil rights organization based in Washington, DC, has a released a new report titled "Ten Harmful Misconceptions About Immigration." The report offers extensive information rebutting common myths about immigrants, including several citations to research done by Truth In Immigration.  We applaud the Center's effort to improve the public debate on immigration.
In “10 Harmful Misconceptions About Immigration” we try to set the record straight about a number of immigration issues badly mangled through current discourse that often seems shaped to appeal to one particular voting block or another. We understand well that the details in our report
will not be of interest to any extremist faction. It is our hope that all others who read it will see the value of this work and use the information it contains to drive falsehood from the public debate on immigration, filling that vacated space with a greater measure of the truth.
