National Immigration Forum
Founded 1982
Focus Value of immigrants to America

The National Immigration Forum (also called "The Forum") advocates for the value of immigrants and immigration to America. The Forum, based in Washington, DC, is one of the nation’s premier immigration policy organizations and has been at the center of every major legislative and policy debate related to immigration since its founding in 1982. The Forum uses its communications, advocacy and policy expertise to create a better, more welcoming America that treats all newcomers fairly and respects the rights of all.

The Forum is a powerful and key advocate on numerous immigration issues, working closely with business, law enforcement, faith and immigrant leadership across the country to advance reforms to our nation’s immigration system. It has gained accreditation from the Better Business Bureau[1] and earned a four-star rating from Charity Navigator.[2]

The National Immigration Forum has policy expertise and engages in communications outreach and coalition-building work with the goal of building consensus on the important role of immigrants and immigration to the United States. Ali Noorani has served as the Forum's executive director since 2008.

The Forum focuses on four main priorities: immigration reform and workforce needs, integration and citizenship, borders and interior enforcement, and state and local immigration developments (the Forum promotes the Constitutional principle that immigration law and enforcement are federal responsibilities).[3]
