On June 9th, CMS hosted an event and discussion on its report, Making Citizenship an Organizing Principle of the US Immigration System: An Analysis of How and Why to Broaden Access to Permanent Residence and Naturalization for New Americans. The report’s authors – Donald Kerwin, Robert Warren, and Charles Wheeler – shared key findings and recommendations. The report makes recommendations to broaden who is eligible for permanent residence and citizenship and includes detailed estimates of immigrant populations that are able to – but have yet to become – US citizens.
The event also included guest remarks from leaders at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
