Jessica Vaughan is the Director of Policy Studies for the Center for Immigration Studies.
Here’s her full bio, from CIS.org:
Jessica M. Vaughan serves as Director of Policy Studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, DC-based research institute that examines the impact of immigration on American society and educates policymakers and opinion leaders on immigration issues. She has been with the Center since 1992, and her area of expertise is immigration policy and operations, covering topics such as visa programs, immigration benefits and immigration law enforcement. Ms. Vaughan recently completed several major projects on immigration and crime, including a Department of Justice-funded project studying the use of immigration law enforcement in transnational gang suppression efforts. In addition, she is an instructor for senior law enforcement officer training seminars at Northwestern University’s Center for Public Safety in Illinois.
Prior to joining the Center, Mrs. Vaughan was a Foreign Service Officer with the State Department, where she served in Belgium and Trinidad & Tobago. Her articles have appeared in the Washington Post, New York Times, National Review, Boston Globe, The Economist, San Francisco Chronicle, In the National Interest, Arizona Republic and other publications, and can be found at www.cis.org. She has testified before Congress several times and advises state lawmakers and agencies on immigration issues. She is frequently cited in news media reports on immigration, and has appeared on NPR, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, and PBS’s NewsHour with Jim Lehrer.
Mrs. Vaughan has a Master’s degree from Georgetown University and earned her Bachelor’s degree in International Studies at Washington College in Maryland.
In other words, she’s very well qualified!
She’s been a frequent speaker on the topic of immigration for many years, even called to testify before Congress.
She recently spoke with Fox New’s Heather Childers about the Migrant Caravan and had a lot of powerful things to say!
Here’s the video:
In the interview, Childers asked if it were more likely that President Trump would get funding for the border wall now after the new Migrant Caravan news. Vaughan responded, “Well, it should.”
“It definitely should because it’s pretty obvious to most people that a wall would stop this kind of thing from happening, or at least people getting through. That’s what used to be the case in California, across the border from San Diego in the nearby places there.”
“People used to gather en masse and just run across when the sun went down, and when they put in the triple fencing people couldn’t do that anymore. It’s one of the most controlled parts of the border that we have. So we need more barriers like that to prevent these kinds of things from happening.”
Watching the Migrant Caravan backfire on the Dems reminds me of the "Trump Boomerang Effect" and the excellent article written by our friends over at LivingGospelDaily recently.
In another interivew, Vaughan explained the serious threat from MS-13:
You don't hear that very much from the MSM, do you?
Thank you to Jessica Vaughan for telling the truth!
