Panel: Fighting Biden in Court

https://cis.org/Press-Release/Upcoming-Panel-Fighting-Biden-Court

The U.S. Supreme Court’s 2021-2022 term is over, and its final ruling was on the “Remain in Mexico” case brought against the administration by the states of Texas and Missouri. But that is only one of a large number of immigration cases filed over the past year and a half since President Biden’s inauguration. The Center for Immigration Studies will host a conversation on immigration-related lawsuits brought against the Biden administration, at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, July 6. The discussion will focus on specific cases being litigated as well as on how litigation has affected decision-making in the executive and how it might influence Congress’s framing of legislation.

Participants bring a combination of immigration policy, legal, and government experience, both at the agency and congressional level, to the conversation. Ken Cuccinelli is a former Virginia Attorney General and former Acting Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. Joseph Edlow is a former Acting Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and served in the executive office of the president and the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Policy. Andrew Arthur, the Center’s Resident Fellow in Law and Policy, is a former immigration judge and counsel on the House Judiciary Committee, where he performed oversight of immigration issues.

The event will be moderated by Mark Krikorian, the Center’s executive director, who will field questions from listeners.

Book Release Press Conference: The CCP is at War with America [Video]

The Center for Security Policy has just released a new “Team B” product – an exercise in competitive analysis that strongly challenges the Director of National Intelligence’s September 2021 conclusion that the provenance of the SARS-CoV-2 virus cannot be determined. The Team, co-chaired by former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Pete Hoekstra and former Deputy Under Secretary of Defense Lieutenant General William “Jerry” Boykin, U.S. Army (Ret.) and comprised of intelligence professionals, other national security practitioners and subject matter experts, concluded that: - There is no evidence that the virus emerged naturally;- There is, by contrast, significant circumstantial evidence that it came from a PRC biological weapons laboratory; and- The virus was deliberately unleashed on the world by the Chinese Communist Party when it allowed millions of travelers from Wuhan to fly internationally, even as it was locking down movement within China.The authors, identified collectively as Team B III (in the tradition of the official group that produced the first Team B exercise in competitive analysis in 1976 and a second one sponsored by the Center for Security Policy in 2010 entitled, Sharia: The Threat to America), call their report: The CCP is at War with America. Acclaimed China expert Gordon G. Chang wrote the Foreword.The book can be purchased here:https://ccpatwar.com/

Report Launch: Software-Defined Warfare [Video]

A forthcoming report by the inaugural Chief Technology Officer of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and former Director of the Department of Defense's (DOD) Joint AI Center discusses key concerns and recommendations onredesigning the DOD for next generation war fighting systems.In future crises and conflicts, the side that adapts faster and demonstrates the greatest agility—to include rapidly updating and promulgating fielded software and AI models—is likely to gain a significant competitive advantage. For the United States to retain its dominant position in the future—which is not a guaranteed outcome—the DOD needs a new design and architecture that will allow it to be far more flexible, scale on demand, and adapt dynamically to changing conditions. The only way for the DOD to stay competitive in this new warfighting environment is to ensure that it uses the most potent weapon available: technology, and more specifically, software.Join CSIS for a panel discussion on software-defined warfare with Nand Mulchandani, CTO of the CIA, and Lt. General (Ret.) John N.T. “Jack” Shanahan, former Director of the DOD's Joint AI Center.This event is made possible by general support to CSIS.---------------------------------------------A nonpartisan institution, CSIS is the top national security think tank in the world.
