International Network for Immigration Research (INIR)

With the crisis in Haiti sparking fears of a new exodus and illegal crossings up in the Mediterranean, maritime illegal immigration is a challenge all destination countries are facing – one that is very different from the challenge of controlling a land border.

On Thursday, April 11, the International Network for Immigration Research (INIR) will host an event to address this issue, entitled “Illegal Immigration by Sea: Challenges in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.”

The event will take place on Thursday, April 11, at 11 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

Stream Links: YouTubeX, Facebook

The speakers will be from three member institutions of INIR:

George Fishman, a Senior Legal Fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies in Washington, D.C., will discuss how the U.S. has responded to past Haitian migration crises;

Viktor Marsai, Director of the Migration Research Institute in Budapest, will discuss the European Union’s difficulties in dealing with illegal immigration across the Mediterranean; and

Eric Ruark, Director of Research at NumbersUSA in Washington, D.C., will examine Florida’s recent moves as an example of what coastal states can do to limit maritime illegal immigration.

Moderator: Mark Krikorian, Executive Director, Center for Immigration Studies.
