Steven Camarota serves as the director of research for the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), a research institute that examines the consequences of legal and illegal immigration on the United States. The Center promotes an informed debate on comprehensive immigration reform by providing policymakers, academics, media, and citizens with fact-based information on immigration. In recent years, Camarota has testified before Congress more than any other non-government expert on the economic and fiscal impact of immigration. Additionally, he was the lead researcher on a contract with the Census Bureau examining the quality of immigrant data in the American Community Survey. Camarota’s research has been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, and USA Today, and numerous other media outlets.
