This event marks the launch of the report Through an Immigrant Lens: PIAAC Assessment of the Competencies of Adults in the United States, which uses data from the 2012 Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) to describe the literacy, numeracy, and computer skills of adults in the United States, immigrant and native born. 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.

MPI released detailed data profiles of unauthorized immigrants for counties in the United States with the largest such populations. The profiles, for 94 counties in 24 states, include population size, countries and regions of origin, recency of arrival, educational enrollment and attainment, English proficiency, industries of employment, health insurance coverage, and much more. Importantly, they also include estimates of the size and share of unauthorized populations potentially eligible for the  Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) programs. The county profiles are the latest additions to an MPI online data tool that has national and state-level profiles of the unauthorized. Experts from MPI discuss interesting county-level findings, and top officials from Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. and the National Council of La Raza talk about the implications of the data for implementation of deferred action.

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.

A discussion on the extraordinary boom in investor immigration. From the rapidly expanding EB-5 visa in the United States to Malta’s controversial “cash for citizenship” policy and a host of programs across Europe and the Caribbean, governments are increasingly offering residence rights or citizenship to wealthy individuals in return for a significant economic investment. These trends raise a host of policy questions. Which programs are most attractive for investors? Are destination countries getting a good deal? How can governments prevent the security lapses and corruption scandals that some investor programs have suffered? The webchat addresses these questions and discusses MPI's report Selling Visas and Citizenship: Policy Questions from the Global Boom in Investor Immigration.

The United States has formally removed 3.7 million noncitizens since the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was established in 2003, a record pace of deportations. An examination of the dataset of all removals effectuated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) between fiscal 2003-13 offers unique insights and lessons. MPI analysis of the DHS data and what it says about major changes to the U.S. deportation system are discussed at this event. The discussion includes a detailed description of formal removals from the United States, including the previous immigration and criminal records of deportees, as well as their country of origin, gender, length of residence in the United States, and other demographic characteristics. Panelists also discuss where noncitizens are being apprehended, how they are being removed, and how DHS’s current enforcement priorities are reflected in enforcement outcomes. The Powerpoint from the event is available here.
