White House Call for Ideas: Help Shape a Federal Immigrant and Refugee Integration Strategy

January 13, 2015

In November 2014, President Obama announced a series of executive actions to fix our broken immigration system. As part of these actions, the President created a White House Task Force on New Americans. The goal of the Task Force is to develop a federal immigrant integration strategy that allows new Americans to contribute to society to their fullest potential and bring new Americans together with their receiving communities to strengthen communities. The Task Force is seeking input on promising practices and examples of model programs that help immigrants and refugees to contribute to your communities and our economy, and to ensure that federal programs and policies continue to reflect our ongoing commitment to welcoming and integrating newcomers into the fabric of our country.
