Recent reports from the U.S. Border Patrol and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services show increases in the numbers of unaccompanied minors crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, being picked up, and placed in their care. Representatives from the Women's Refugee Commission recently conducted a fact-finding mission at the border to discover more about this trend and resulting impacts; KIND serves unaccompanied children who enter the U.S. immigration system alone.

MPI hosts a discussion with experts from KIND and the Women’s Refugee Commission, focusing on causes of the increase in unaccompanied minor migrants, the situation they face once detained, and challenges confronting NGOs trying to provide aid and the U.S. government agencies responsible for processing minors through the system.

This panel discussion on unaccompanied minors focuses on a report by Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) and the Center for Gender & Refugee Studies (CGRS) at UC Hastings College of the Law, A Treacherous Journey: Child Migrants Navigating the U.S. Immigration System. The panel moderated by Kathleen Newland, Director of the Refugee Protection Program at MPI, includes speakers Elizabeth Dallam, KIND National Legal Services Director; Lisa Frydman, CGRS Associate Director and Managing Attorney; Karen Musalo, GGRS Director; and KIND Executive Director Wendy Young. The discussion focuses on the conclusion that children face a U.S. immigration system created for adults that is not required to consider the child’s best interests. Unaccompanied children are not provided lawyers to help them navigate the complex requirements of immigration proceedings. The report is available at www.supportkind.org and www.cgrs.uchastings.edu.

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.

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.

This webinar covers the findings from MPI's report about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative and eligible populations two years after its implementation. In this briefing, MPI researchers present their analysis of the immediately and potentially eligible DACA populations nationally and for leading states, as well as broader sociodemographic findings, including English proficiency, educational attainment, poverty level, and more. They also discuss the broader implications of DACA for U.S. immigration and integration policy, as well as lessons that can be applied to the program’s next phase or possible executive action that might expand deferred action to other unauthorized immigrant populations. The webinar also introduces MPI's latest data tool, which provides estimates for the U.S. and 41 states of the current and potentially eligible DACA populations, as well as detailed profiles for the U.S. and 25 states.

Consider this fact: One in four children in the United States is the child of an immigrant. The well-being of these children does and continues to have a profound impact on the social and economic strength of this country. With that in mind, the Migration Policy Institute'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, this conference lies uniquely at the intersection of not just early education and health but immigration policy.

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.
