What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The National Immigration Forum advocates for the value of immigrants and immigration to our nation. In service to this mission, the Forum promotes responsible immigration policies addressing today's economic and national security needs while honoring the ideals of our Founding Fathers, who created America as a land of opportunity. We seek to bridge policy and politics to create solutions necessary for our country and all its residents to prosper. We believe critical constituencies communicating effective messages will lead to strategic and successful public policy change. From immigrant integration to immigration reform, our model has proved successful in engaging new allies and shaping public opinion, and will lead to improvements in policy or to mitigating the effects of negative policy efforts.

Statistics show a direct correlation between immigrant integration and happier, more effective workers, which directly impacts business profitability.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The National Immigration Forum’s vision for the future is to ensure America can thrive by advocating for policy change that helps new Americans gain the opportunities, skills and status they need to realize their full potential.

Our work is centered around four overarching priority concerns:

Immigration Reform & Workforce Needs
Integration & Citizenship
Borders & Interior Enforcement
State and Local Immigration Developments

We believe critical constituencies communicating effective messages advance strategic administrative and legislative advocacy efforts.

We bring together moderate and conservative faith, law enforcement and business leaders to weigh in with media and policy makers in support of practical and commonsense immigration, citizenship and integration policies. In particular, we utilize our unique Bibles, Badges and Business campaign and our innovative New American Workforce business engagement program to explain policy issues in a creative way; to execute digital and traditional grasstops and grassroots strategies that position immigrants and refugees as protectors, givers and Americans in the eyes of the public; and to advocate for a new way forward for America’s immigration system.

Founded in 1982, the National Immigration Forum advocates for the value of immigrants and immigration to our nation. In service to this mission, the Forum promotes responsible federal immigration policies, addressing today’s economic and national security needs while honoring the ideals of our Founding Fathers, who created America as a land of opportunity.

For 30 years, the Forum has worked to advance sound federal immigration solutions through its policy expertise, communications outreach and coalition building work, which forges powerful alliances of diverse constituencies across the country to build consensus on the important role of immigrants in America.
