 Not Waiting for Congress to Help Immigrants 

From the Community College Times
8/1/2013

While Congress mulls over immigration reform, local, state and even federal efforts are moving ahead to help both legal and undocumented immigrants integrate into communities, particularly through education and workforce preparation.

The polarizing issue has stymied federal lawmakers, but at the grassroots level communities are taking action as the population of immigrants continues to grow, with the U.S. being home to 20 percent of all immigrants. Many of those efforts include community colleges and local organizations providing basic adult education and English as a second language (ESL) courses to help immigrants start on a path toward higher education or job training.
