Immigrants and WIOA Services Factsheet

The Migration Policy Institute released facts sheet for the United States and the states with the largest foreign-born populations. Each factsheet provides estimates of the ages, origins, educational attainment, English proficiency, unemployment and underemployment, parental status, poverty, health insurance coverage and immigration status and their relevance to WIOA. The factsheets can be found on the MPI website or by following this link: http://www.migrationpolicy.org/research/immigrants-and-wioa-services-comparison-sociodemographic-characteristics-native-and-foreign

What have the states with largest foreign-born populations learned about serving their new residents? What lessons have been learned? What has worked on not worked?

Would sharing the information from these fact sheets provide good topics for discussion, reading, writing, debating, and reflection? Could immigrants themselves offer ideas on how to best serve them as they discuss this and related topics? Do we ever ask them? Hmmmm... Leecy
