    What it seems like the government fails to take into account is that the services are not only provided for super-new immigrants–those that arrived just this year–but also to new immigrants–those that have been here for more than a year. Both groups continue to need these services in major cities where the immigrant population is still highest.

    Of course, time will tell, I suppose.
