In Assembly Concurrent Resolution 128 (Campbell, 1990), the Legislature asked the Commission to give it policy recommendations by March 1992 on ten topics related to education and job training for the State's "new Californians" -- the 1.6 million formerly undocumented aliens who have become legalized residents under the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.

The Commission presents its eight conclusions and six recommendations in the Executive Summary of the report on pages 1-4. It explains the origins of the report in Part Two. In Part Three it describes the implementation of the Immigration Reform and Control Act and particularly of its State Legalization Impact Assistance Grant (SLIAG) program, through which California has received temporary funding to help these new Californians. In Part Four it identifies the major characteristics of these newly legalized residents, and in Part Five it summarizes the education and job training the new Californians have received through California's community colleges, adult schools, and private community-based organizations.

The Commission has been aided in its analysis by a task force of representatives from these educational institutions and organizations as well as the California Department of Education and the Chancellor's Office of the California Community Colleges.

The Commission adopted this report at its meeting of March 30, 1992, on recommendation of its Policy Evaluation Committee.
