CCIS in the News
CCIS works extensively with the media to disseminate its research findings. Research content has been provided for more than 350 print and electronic news reports distributed nationally and internationally. The Center has produced 13 programs on immigration issues for public television. These programs have been broadcast locally, statewide, and nationally by UCSD-TV, UC-TV, and the Dish Network. In addition, CCIS has provided significant amounts of content for programs or segments on immigration policy that were broadcast by CBS “60 Minutes” (two segments, broadcast in 2005 and 2009), PBS “Frontline,” PBS “NewsHour with Jim Lehrer,” Utah Public Television, CNN, NBC Nightly News, ABC Evening News, BBC World Service, and HBO Documentaries, as well as for several independent films on the U.S.-Mexico border.
