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.

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.
