    NEW YORK, — This grant to the Center for Migration Studies (CMS) will develop research and information tools to assist governmental and non-governmental actors to plan for implementation of any future legalization program for undocumented immigrants. CMS will produce estimates of the unauthorized immigrant population in the United States at the state and sub-state level. It will also analyze which undocumented immigrants may be eligible for lawful status under current law, and develop outreach and marketing strategies to encourage eligible immigrants to seek lawful status. This project will facilitate the successful implementation of any future law allowing undocumented immigrants to regularize their status.

    NEW YORK, — This grant to the Center for Migration Studies (CMS) will help to assess the impact of proposed comprehensive immigration reform legislation and the requirements for successful implementation of any new such law. CMS will convene a meeting of demographers, government officials, and policy makers to develop a research agenda related to the population that may be eligible to legalize their immigration status. The resulting state-specific information will inform policy makers and service providers on the demographic characteristics, economic contributions, and legal and social service needs of this population.

The MacArthur Foundation awarded Center for Migration Studies of New York $994,000 between 1983 and 2015.
