SUMMARY The Program Analyst supports the Migration Working Group office with programmatic, research, and inter-departmental and inter-agency coordinating support for region and country-specific policy development. ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES Develop and maintain a broad, deep, and current understanding of the administration's migration policy, and stay abreast of policy changes or new initiatives that affect the Department of State's interests in irregular migration from the Western Hemisphere to the US southern border. Works with office leadership to draft and clear briefing memos - often on short notice - to prepare principals for weekly Principal, Deputy and Executive Committee meetings on migration issues. Works with officer leadership to draft and clear reports of interagency progress on key milestones in the administration strategies to stem irregular immigration at the US southern border. As part of the MWG team, assist in leading WHA's coordination within the Bureau, as well as with PRM, INL, USAID, and DHS, on implementing the Root Causes Strategy and the Collaborative Migration Management Strategy to stem irregular migration to the US southern border. Participate in meetings, including interagency committees and with external stakeholders from civil society, for migration-based programs and perform any follow-up action necessary including briefings to leadership. Coordinate with Public Affairs in developing targeted messaging to counter malign influence from migrant smugglers and encourage migrants to take advantage of USG programs to help them build better futures in their home communities. Monitor political, economic, and security developments in the Western Hemisphere that affect administration migration policy, providing written or oral assessments, analyses, and support to WHA/MWG and the Bureau, including but not limited to assembling briefing books, drafting reports, clearing thematic and regional paper to contribute to well-coordinated US government policy and program recommendations to the MWG office and Bureau leadership. Gather interagency information and statistics on migration trends to inform policy making. Use DHS arrival statistics of monthly arrivals of migrants at the US southern border to report and flag trends (increase in arrivals from certain nationalities) which help us suggest policy responses. For example, we asked Mexico to impose a visa requirement on Venezuelans to decrease the number of Venezuelans arriving in Mexico and then making their way North to the US southern border.
