American Immigrant Policy Portal

The American Immigrant Policy Portal is a website that provides digests of major reports and studies focusing on policy options and model practices designed to promote immigrant integration, intergroup understanding, economic revitalization, and organizational success.

"Due to cultural differences and language barriers, immigrants are often cut off from community support systems, especially during the period of adjustment to a new society. If government and private agencies are to fulfill their mission of serving the entire community, they must strive to reach out to immigrants and deliver services in linguistically and culturally appropriate ways. Without such efforts, integration will be blocked, and the health and well being of immigrants, as well as the native-born population, will be jeopardized."
