The National Immigration Forum works to promote responsible immigration policies – ones that honor our Founding Fathers’ commitment to an open society and also address today’s economic and national security needs. In a time when our country struggles to find a realistic and safe immigration solution, the National Immigration Forum is a principled and pragmatic policy voice intent on raising the level of discourse and valuing the humanity and benefit of immigrants and refugees.
Founded in 1982, the Forum plays a leading role in the national debate about immigration, knitting together innovative alliances across diverse faith, labor, immigrant, non-immigrant and business constituencies in communities across the country. Coming together under the Forum’s leadership, these alliances develop and execute legislative and administrative policy positions and advocacy strategies.
Leveraging our policy, education and communications expertise, the Forum works for comprehensive immigration reform and also engages in day-to-day problems related to civil rights, border security, deportation, naturalization and integration, and family unity.

In 1915, Bethlehem Steel was one of the first U.S. employers to provide free English language instruction to its immigrant workforce. Now, with approximately 8.8 million immigrants currently eligible for citizenship, the National Immigration Forum has established the New American Workforce to work with businesses at their worksites to assist their eligible immigrant employees with the citizenship process and help them achieve essential English skills to equip them to become more valuable workers and full participants in the workplace, community and economy.
The Forum is the organizer and manager, acting as the go-between with local and national businesses and local service providers that provide immigrant integration services.
