The effect immigration has on U.S. classrooms is a vital yet less-studied area of U.S. immigration that will impact the skills of our future workforce and our ability to compete in the global economy.

In this video, Michael Fix and Margie McHugh, Co-Directors of MPI’s National Center on Immigrant Integration Policy will discuss the number and growth of children from immigrant families in U.S. schools, the rise of “new destination” states, the increase of children in U.S. schools who require assistance to help them learn English,  and the impact of federal policies under elementary and secondary education laws on immigrant and ELL students in their schools.

This event marks the release of the MPI brief Executive Action for Unauthorized Immigrants: Estimates of the Populations that Could Receive ReliefWith the Obama administration contemplating executive action in the immigration arena, immigrant-rights leaders, members of Congress, and others have proposed a number of options for executive action that President Obama could take to provide relief from deportation to more of the nation’s estimated 11.7 million unauthorized immigrants. Among the options are extending deferred action to populations beyond those eligible for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and further refining the enforcement priorities that guide deportations. In this briefing, MPI experts unveil their findings, providing estimates of the numbers who may benefit from potential approaches to administrative relief.

Given the unique position of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program at the convergence of the immigration and education fields, MPI has sought to capture the ways in which local educational institutions, legal service providers, and youth advocates have responded to DACA’s first phase. Conducting interviews with stakeholders in states with large immigrant populations—California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, New York, and Texas—MPI examined initiatives by educational institutions and other community stakeholders to support DACA youth’s education and training success. Those findings are offered in a report, Lessons from the Local Level: DACA’s Implementation and Impact on Education and Training Success. Report authors discuss key challenges facing legal service providers and educators serving DACA youth, along with lessons for new and ongoing efforts seeking to support the implementation of the DACA and Deferred Action for Parental Accountability programs.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is potentially one of the biggest initiatives U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will have undertaken. With this development, MPI has released an updated fact sheet, Relief from Deportation: Demographic Profile of the DREAMers Potentially Eligible under the Deferred Action Policy, estimating that there are approximately 1.76 million unauthorized immigrants who could potentially benefit from the initiative that has been issued.

MPI hosts this discussion with USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas talking about the application process and policies that the agency has announced to implement the administration’s deferred action program. Director Mayorkas’ presentation is followed by a panel discussion on additional questions and challenges of implementing the new program.

In 2010, nearly one in four U.S. children under 18 was the child of an immigrant. Latino, Black, Asian, and multiracial children together are nearing a majority of the nation’s children. Not surprisingly, scholarship has focused on the largest immigrant groups: the children of Latinos and Asians. Far less academic attention has been paid to the rapidly diversifying Black immigrant child population.

To examine this population, MPI has released a major volume, Young Children of Black Immigrants in America: Changing Flows, Changing Faces, which provides demographic overviews of Black immigrants in the U.S. and their children. The event discussion will touch on the intersection of race and immigration, will focus on the demographics of this population, their educational success, and implications of the volume’s findings.

Over the past several decades the number of children from immigrant families who attend U.S. schools has grown dramatically. Children who enter U.S. schools speaking a language other than English are called English Language Learners (ELLs).

In this video, Michael Fix and Margie McHugh, Co-Directors of the MPI’s National Center on Immigrant Integration Policy, examine the distribution of ELLs in schools across the United States and key indicators of  their performance on standardized tests n hopes of informing the public discussion on ELL students.

Report authors present their findings and discuss what their analysis reveals about the literacy of the first- and second-generation immigrant population in the United States, the U.S. education and workforce training system, and the implications for the future of the U.S. labor market and its role in the global economy. Panelists from the U.S. Department of Labor and the National Skills Coalition comment on the results in the context of the U.S. workforce and education policies and global context.
