Jared Sanchez of the University of Southern California's Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration said the task force is, in some ways, looking to follow the lead of the cities who have already started this work. The meeting Friday in California will highlight efforts to expand access to healthcare, driver's licenses, and college for immigrants, as well as non-profit programs in LA that help individuals apply for citizenship and study for the test, the mayor's office told the Los Angeles Times. The office did not respond to VICE News' request for comment.

In addition to the Marion cases, the investigation found evidence that 13 other children had been trafficked after officials handed them over to adults who were supposed to care for them during their immigration proceedings. An additional 15 cases exhibited some signs of trafficking.

The report also said that it was unclear how many of the approximately 90,000 children the agency had placed in the past two years fell prey to traffickers, including sex traffickers, because it does not keep track of such cases.

The study’s authors, Ran Abramitzky of Stanford University and Leah Platt Boustan of UCLA, focus on two specific waves of immigrants: Those who arrived in the U.S. between 1850 and 1920, and those who have arrived in the past few decades. First, they found significant differences in country of origin: The historical group is primarily composed of Europeans while current immigrants are much more likely to hail from Asia and Latin America. That difference is important for many reasons.

The downward trend has even come as welcome news to advocates for tighter immigration laws and enforcement, including those who are among the most strident opponents of granting legal status to those already in the U.S. “It’s good,” said Roy Beck, executive director of Numbers USA. “It does suggest that the situation is not as urgent as it was,” he added, referring to the years between 1990 and 2008, when the population of undocumented immigrants increased significantly.

Most people on both sides of the argument have focused on how the president’s immigration initiatives would affect the adults applying for this temporary reprieve from deportation. What these legal observers and pundits fail to notice is that the biggest potential beneficiaries of the immigration measures announced by Obama are U.S. citizen children who suffer the consequences of our broken immigration system on a daily basis.

Part of the American Competitiveness in the Twenty-First Century Act of 2000 was enacted to increase job flexibility for foreign workers in the U.S. Prior to the Act, employment-based immigration cases were taking so long that they would often result in immigrant workers’ employment status changing while waiting for a visa, requiring them to start the process anew.

The DAPA and DACA programs allow certain immigrants who have been in the U.S. for at least 5 years, have not committed felonies and meet other criteria to remain and work in the U.S. without fear of deportation. Both sides have stated that they welcome the Supreme Court decision. The decision would provide the last chance for the administration to implement the programs before Obama leaves office.
