CEI Today: Legal Immigration, Sunshine Week, CEI at CPAC, and more!


March 20 Hill Briefing: Getting Legal Immigration Right

The immigration debate in Washington needs to move past the current illegal immigration problem to the future. If Congress is to seriously consider comprehensive immigration reform, it must address America’s broken legal immigration system. The system is beset by arbitrary restrictions, time constraints, and quotas. Real reform must address these issues.


SUNSHINE WEEK - Chris Horner

CEI.org: Administration Brags About FOIA; CEI Experience Tells Different Story

This week is "Sunshine Week," a national initiative dedicated to open government. In the spirit of the occasion, the White House is publishing a series of posts demonstrating "the Obama Administration's continued commitment to open and accessible government." Interestingly, Monday's post focused on "progress made improving the administration of the FOIA [Freedom of Information Act]."


As detailed here, CEI is currently receiving tranches of emails from the EPA as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request (and subsequent lawsuit) targeting emails from now-former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson's alias "Richard Windsor" email account. Most of the emails we have received are heavily redacted.
