Mosaic Project Acknowledged in The Chicago Council on Global Affairs Report on Immigration

As the Midwest prepares for President Obama’s executive actions on immigration to take effect, it has a significant stake in ensuring that they are implemented successfully. The actions offer millions of unauthorized immigrants across the country a temporary reprieve from deportation and permission to work lawfully in the United States. Full participation by the estimated 579,000 eligible residents in the Midwest could generate $652.3 million in tax revenues over the next five years. State and city government agencies, nonprofits, and legal service providers, among others, will play key roles in helping immigrants complete their applications. While these groups have begun taking steps to prepare, regional efforts are far from complete and
many challenges remain.
