    I received this is an email from Alex Nowrasteh today. Please give it wide dissemination.


    I wanted to send you some new immigration research from Cato First is a new paper I wrote that estimates the risk of death by terrorism based on visa category.

    The report finds that the chance of a U.S. resident dying in a terrorist attack on U.S. soil committed by a foreigner was just 1 in 3.6 million per year from 1975 to 2015. Among refugees, the risks are even smaller, just 1 in 3.6 billion—1,000-fold less than the risk from foreigners generally. For those who entered illegally, the chance was just 1 in 10.9 billion. For comparison, the likelihood of being murdered by a non-terrorist over this period was 1 in 14,275. I pasted the key chart below, but you can read the entire paper here.

    I’ve also been busy writing about a variety of other topics.
