Institute for Immigration Research

Facts Matter.

Immigration is a complex, contentious, and emotional issue clouded by myths and misinformation.

The IIR debunks myths and disseminates factual information about immigrants and immigration.

The IIR is joint venture with The Immigrant Learning Center, Inc. (ILC) of Malden, Massachusetts.


The IIR strives to provide the most reliable, accurate data for scholars, policymakers, and the public. By supporting the IIR, you enable us to advance our mission in research, education, and professional opportunities for current and future scholars of immigration studies.

  • Enable us to continue to disseminate this necessary research and publicize our expertise
  • Fund additional graduate research assistants who will support our research and will become the next generation of immigration scholars
