A project of the National Immigration Forum, the Council on National Security and Immigration (CNSI) is a group of American national security leaders who believe immigration reforms are imperative to bolster and maintain the United States’ global leadership in the 21st century.
CNSI believes that a successful immigration framework respects the rule of law, strengthens our national security and economic interests, upholds human dignity, and values immigrants’ contributions to the success of our nation.
The Council on National Security and Immigration advocates for immigration reforms that accomplish the following policy goals:
- Direct resources toward pressing 21st century threats and proactively address vulnerabilities in our outdated immigration system.
- Implement robust and efficient screening and vetting, as well as effective border security measures.
- Prioritize immigration policies and administrative structures that strengthen our economy and advance our national security posture.
- Strengthen our global relationships and emphasize cooperation and vital information-sharing with foreign partners.
- Demonstrate humanitarian leadership by welcoming the most vulnerable migrants in accordance with our domestic laws and international obligations and encourage other countries to do the same.
