Mission Statement

This task force was created in early 2006 primarily to tackle the job of crafting a policy statement to guide NCSL's immigration lobbying efforts with the federal government. The policy has given NCSL substantial credibility on immigration. Since adoption of the statement, the task force has been immersed in the organization's efforts to influence the final shape of national immigration legislation.  In addition, the task force has been successful in focusing attention on the unprecedented state legislative efforts to address immigration issues.
