Immigrant inclusion is a crucial step in realizing the economic potential, not only for individuals and their families, but also for American employers and communities.

This includes removing restrictions that limit immigrant access to education and training, building essential supports and strategies into these policies, and ensuring that policymakers understand immigrant eligibility for education, workforce, and support services.
