Two reports from the Center for Immigration Studies about efforts to prevent further attacks on American soil were released on August 30, 2005. A panel, including the authors of the papers, discussed such topics as monitoring tracking immigrants within the United States, civil rights and law enforcement issues, as well as threats posed to various parts on the nation’s infrastructure. Members of the panel also talked broadly about the nature of terrorism and past government responses to terrorist threats. Following their remarks, panelists responded to questions and comments from members of the audience.
The two reports were “Immigration and Terrorism: Moving Beyond the 9/11 Staff Report on Terrorist Travel” and “Keeping Extremists Out: The History of Ideological Exclusion, and the Need for Its Revival.” Mr. Krikorian moderated the event. close
