Guides & Reports
In this brief, we examine changes in the number of naturalized citizens and the rate of naturalization. We also explore the size and characteristics of the pool of immigrants in the United States now or soon to be eligible to naturalize. Core findings include:
By Lutheran Immigrant & Refugee Services (LIRS) and Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) The leadership development model explored in this initiative has at its core the relationship between community-based organizations that provide services to immigrants and the immigrant communities they serve. We believe this is an effective collaboration because the uniting of established, experienced organizations with the energy, ideas, skills and concerns of immigrants and refugees can strengthen both. It is only one of several immigrant-oriented leadership development models.
Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) and Funders’ Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP) joined forces to research and produce Pursuing Democracy’s Promise: Newcomer Civic Participation in America to call the philanthropic community’s attention to the critical
importance of engaging immigrants and refugees in civic life and integrating them fully into our society.

At-Risk Reports (2000-2001)
In 2000-2001, CLINIC published a series of reports on immigration issues based on numerous case studies. These are not current reports.
The reports identify, track, and examine the impact of our nation's laws and immigration policies on at-risk immigrants. They illustrate particularly compelling problems faced by immigrants, clear explanations of the law at the root of such problems, and other research.
