"The Deportation Dilemma: Reconciling Tough and Humane Enforcement" Migration Policy Institute

"The Deportation Dilemma: Reconciling Tough and Humane Enforcement" - MPI

I suggest that you click on the link in the above article "report" (second paragraph in red).  The title of the actual Migration Policy Institute (MPI) 71 page report is "The Deportation Dilemma: Reconciling Tough and Humane Enforcement".   

I find it interesting that the writer of this "VOXXI Griselda Nevarez" published by HP selected statistics from 71 pages of this original MPI report and presented them without naming the original title of the original MPI report "The Deportation Dilemma: Reconciling Tough and Humane Enforcement".  My guess is VOXXI and HP are not interested in reconciling tough and humane enforcement.

With that said click on the link again and at the top of that page click on "Funders".  You will see "MPI is funded primarily through research grants from foundations.  We also receive funding from organizations, U.S. and international government agencies, corporations, and individuals".

I see a possible conflict of interest when any non-profit organization receives funding from grants, US government agencies, US corporations and individuals and then reports on US migration.  I am also suspicious when the ex-Commissioner of INS (including immigration enforcement), Doris Meissner, writes migration articles for the MPI.

With that said I am also suspicious that MPI's most recent articles on NAFTA and CAFTA are from 2007.  MPI reports on migration issues yet its most current discussion about how NAFTA- exacerbated illegal immigration to the US is 10 years old?
