Heritage Center Signals Move to Center With Appointment of Pro-Immigration Economist

Rate this Entry
Encouraging. A number of prestigious conservative groups in DC have been firmly in the pro-immigration camp for a while, but the Heritage Foundation has been one that has taken tough anti-immigration positions under the leadership of former South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint. Now Heritage has recruited pro-immigration conservative economist Stephen Moore. From Benjy Sarlin at MSNBC:

This week, Moore announced he is joining the DeMint-helmed Heritage Foundation as its chief economist. Heritage has been one of the most prominent opponents of immigration reform, pressuring Republican lawmakers last year to oppose bipartisan legislation, but Moore says he won’t shy away from addressing the issue in his new role.

The move puts Moore and DeMint on the same team during a critical stretch for immigration reform in Congress. Moore has pledged to work with the former South Carolina lawmaker to “develop a pro-growth immigration policy.”

“I don’t want Heritage to be viewed as anti-immigration,” he said in an interview with Heritage blog The Foundry about his new position. “We all know immigration is vitally important to our economy. Our goal will be to develop an immigration policy that’s in the best interest of America, our economy, and allows the United States to get the best and brightest people to come here.”

    Impeccable open border associations: Wall Street Journal and Cato. Frank Sharry and Alex Nowrasteh are applauding (which pretty much says it all). Is this guy going to turn Heritage into just another member of the open border establishment?

    If Heritage really wants to attract the best and brightest to America, maybe they should tell this to USCIS. The Obama administration, which holds itself out as pro-immigrant, while taking some of the most anti-immigrant actions in our modern history, seems to be having a big problem with letting in the most highly educated and talented H-1B specialty workers and extraordinary ability professionals, or allowing them to stay here.

    I have written about this in some of my recent ilw.com posts and there will be more to come.
