CHALLENGE: LA County

TOPIC: Immigration

An In-Person Challenge Sponsored by the Purple Aisle

Deadline: Jul. 27, 2018 at 5:00pm PT

The challenges posed by immigration policy have led to outright turmoil in Washington and has had a trickle-down effect on states across the nation. The Dreamers… chain immigration… merit-based policies. Politicians are trying to find a way to protect our nation and balance America’s humanitarian responsibilities.


During this policy-making challenge we will explore the impact of immigration policy on the American economy and workforce. Conservatives, centrists, and liberals alike will discuss the challenges and opportunities America faces. How might we better manage immigration so as to meet the needs of the U.S. economy and employers over the next 20 years without threatening national security or disadvantaging native workers?


At the end of this two-day in-person lab, decision makers and teams will collaborate to create a 90-day action plan to advance model policies into legislation and community program models into pilots.


MAIN POLICY PRIORITIES: Bipartisan Policies that impact Economy, Immigration, Education, Transportation, Election

Any Constraints (budgetary, legal, etc.):

Policies should aim to have a 20-year impact horizon.
