Thousands of Venezuelan migrants are eligible to apply for Temporary Protected and work permits as of Tuesday.

City and state officials hope work permits will help migrants obtain jobs and boost the economy, but a new report says a lack of investment in the state's workforce training infrastructure could make it difficult for migrants to transition to employment.

The report calls for more state resources to help with English for Speakers of Other Languages classes, many of which have months-long wait lists in the city.

Jonathan Bowles, the executive director of the Center for an Urban Future, joined host Errol Louis on “Inside City Hall” Tuesday night to talk about this report and more.
