In an important new report published in the Journal on Migration and Human Security, CIRI's Human Resources Working Group details the human and financial resources that will be needed to build community capacity in order to coordinate the successful implementation of a large-scale legalization program. The Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) convened the lead authors of this report — Charles Kamasaki (National Council of La Raza), Susan Timmons (American Immigration Lawyers Association), and Courtney Tudy (World Relief) - to discuss their key finding related to the capacity and funding needs of community-based immigrant-service agencies. They discussed next steps for the CIRI network, including the substantial populations of unauthorized immigrants that the CIRI network plans to serve, notwithstanding delays in implementation of DAPA and expanded DACA and the absence of Congressional action on immigration.
