Kasich Welcomes Immigrants to Ohio

Gov. John Kasich has established an Office of Opportunities for New Americans, paired with an advisory committee of 12 representatives from immigrant communities, business leaders and nonprofit immigration advocates, to provide resources for legal immigrants in Ohio to obtain job skills and employment opportunities.

To Republican Gov. John Kasich, an immigrant and a new American are one in the same.

That much is clear with the outgoing governor’s most recent creation, one that will help immigrants find jobs in Ohio by breaking down barriers — often set up by state government — that can make life even more difficult for immigrants experiencing a life-changing transition.

The Office of Opportunities for New Americans, paired with an advisory committee of 12 representatives from immigrant communities, business leaders and nonprofit immigration advocates, will provide resources for legal immigrants to obtain job skills and employment opportunities.

Joining the committee in their discussions and recommendations are leaders from the Ohio departments of Education, Higher Education, Job and Family Services, Commerce, Development Services Agency and Office of Workforce Transformation, giving the committee an interconnectedness between state agencies and the immigrants they aim to assist.

In sharp contrast to President Donald Trump, Kasich is opening his arms to immigrants and the economic benefits he says they can bring.

2. Now that his term is up and he wants to be president he does this.

Why now? Why not when he was first elected? He's a two faced backstabber.
