CLASP Recommendations to the White House Task Force on New Americans
The Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) is pleased that the Biden Administration is re-establishing the White House Task Force on New Americans. This critical interagency task force aims to ensure that immigrants–including those newly arrived and those who have long-established roots in the United States–are supported in becoming thriving members of their communities. As the task force takes on its work, we want to stress the importance of advancing comprehensive and inclusive solutions that reflect the diversity of the immigrant community. Such an approach requires addressing the needs of immigrants with low incomes, as well as adopting a whole-family, multi-generational strategy that recognizes the reality of mixed-status families. CLASP recently submitted solicited recommendations to the White House Task Force on New Americans that draw on our cross-sector expertise in immigration and anti-poverty policies.
