Last November, the President created a White House Task Force on New Americans. Its goal is to develop a federal immigrant and refugee 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 other communities.
The White House recently issued a Blog post highlighting the creation of the Task Force. Additionally, the blog serves as a CALL FOR IDEAS to help shape the focus of the federal immigration and refugee integration strategy. By March, the Task Force will submit a plan to President Obama that includes recommendations for federal actions to promote the integration of new Americans. In developing this plan, the Task Force needs to hear from you.
