Obama ‘New American’ task force looking for ideas on “integrating” immigrants and refugees

We told you here a couple of weeks ago that the Obama Administration wants to Shape a Federal Immigrant and Refugee Integration Strategy!

They need your help and have scheduled listening sessions so you might give them ideas.

I’m thinking the best way to assimilate (preferred word!) them is to bring a whole lot less of them into the country now and into the foreseeable future.

Here is the e-mail I received yesterday (you are a “Stakeholder” too):

Dear Stakeholder,

The President’s Task Force on New Americans and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) invite you to participate in three listening sessions on Thursday, Jan. 29, 2015 from 1 to 2 p.m. (Eastern), Tuesday, Feb. 3, 2015, from 1 to 2 p.m. (Eastern) and Thursday, Feb. 5, 2015, from 1 to 2 p.m. (Eastern) to discuss federal strategies to strengthen the civic integration of new Americans.

On Nov. 21, 2014, President Barack Obama issued a memorandum establishing a White House Task Force on New Americans, an interagency effort to develop a coordinated federal strategy to better integrate new Americans into communities.

During these listening sessions, Task Force members and USCIS officials will provide an overview of the Task Force on New Americans and seek your feedback on best practices or strategies for successfully integrating immigrants into local communities.
