The Migration Policy Institute (MPI)’s National Center on Immigrant Integration Policy convened a major public policy research symposium focused on young children of immigrants in the United States. While policies that crucially influence the development of young children (birth through age 10) of immigrants are typically examined through a specific policy lens, the conference lies uniquely at the intersection of not just early education and health but also immigration policy.
